I would suggest you post your question to the OLAC-L or go to the OLAC website (<>)  There are some very well trained and respected cartographic catalogers there.

Subject: [PCCLIST] Cataloging Globes?

Hello all,

I have the honor of cataloging our newest planetary globes at Brooks Library. One set will be circulating and the second set will be non-circulating.  I am not sure how to approach the task, other than creating a record in OCLC, adjusting header/leader to represent globes, putting in our local location with RDA standards, but as it comes from our GovPubs department, I'm just not feeling confident.

In addition, I am using RDA standards.

Before I begin my research in this new challenge, I am hopeful that some of you are familiar with cataloging globes and will share with us your best practices.

Thank you for sharing.
