Hi Julie,


You could also send your query to the MAGIRT list.  MAGIRT is the Map and Geospatial Information Round Table of ALA; many cartographic catalogers belong to MAGIRT.

OLAC stands for Online Audio-Visual Catalogers.  The membership meets at a dedicated conference every two years and is focused on cataloging non-print materials, such as videos, sound recordings, models, etc.  They also do work on genre terms, authority work, etc.  The cost to join is minimal.  Again, I would encourage checking out their website.

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.
