Description: This workshop is designed for practicing catalogers from all  
types of libraries who have a working knowledge of the MARC21              
bibliographic format and AACR2.  The course is based on the revised        
chapters 9 and 12 of AACR2 and covers all integrating resources, with an   
emphasis on remote access electronic integrating resources. The workshop   
covers the new rules that have been added to these chapters and will       
provide timely guidance to catalogers who may be responsible for           
cataloging them. The sessions include an introduction to integrating       
resources and their identification, instructions for originally cataloging 
updating Web sites and databases, making changes to existing records, and  
case studies covering more difficult aspects of cataloging electronic      
integrating resources.                                                     
SCCTP:  This workshop is part of the Library of Congress Serials

Online Learning: How It Works: Sometime within the week prior to the start   
of the course, each participant will receive an ID and password for          
logging into the workshop Web site, which includes areas for the course      
content posted as PDF documents, online discussion forums, a dropbox for     
uploading exercises, etc.  The workshop will be interactive and              
participants will move through the material together as a group,             
completing content and exercises by the same deadlines, and engaging in      
online discussion.  Opportunities for working on exercises in small groups   
will be provided.  See the link to Online learning requirements above
