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 workshop also covers the recent
implementation of Bibliographic Level code “i” in OCLC.  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 Cataloging
Cooperative Training Program (SCCTP), which provides standardized training
materials and trained trainers in the field of continuing resources. For
