Really good cataloging does not come easily. It takes commitment to details to figure out how to handle some of the trickier cataloging problems that can arise. Book Blitz I covered the easy rules, but in Book Blitz II, be prepared for the more complex cataloging rules! Once you are comfortable with finding your way around the basic cataloging tools--the Anglo American Cataloguing Rules (AACR2R), Library of Congress Rule Interpretations (LCRI), and the MARC coding standards (MARC21)--you will be ready to tackle the harder stuff, for example: * Parallel titles * Part titles * Confusing statements of responsibility * Collections * More on series * More on personal name, corporate, conference, and uniform title headings * Verifying name and title headings against the LC Authority files Recommended prerequisites: Book Blitz I or equivalent knowledge of cataloging rules before coming to this workshop. Required text: Cataloging with AACR2R and MARC21, 2nd ed., by Deborah A. Fritz. Chicago: American Library Association, 2004. ISBN: 0-8389-0884-5. Attendees must purchase book and bring it to the program. For more cataloging training, mark your calendar for these three workshops: * MARC21 In Your Library--February 28, 2005 * Just for Copy Cats--March 1-2, 2005, and * Book Blitz I: Making MARC Records That Work--August 15-18, 2005 For more information, call (202) 707-4800 or visit the FLICC Web site at http://www.loc.gov/flicc/.
