Following the first two meetings of the PCC Sinopia Cataloging Affinity Group
, the facilitators would like to offer a Working Hour option to create a space dedicated to creating actual descriptions in Sinopia, rather than presentations and discussions. During the working hours, you can join your colleagues virtually via Zoom, work concurrently on resource descriptions, and discuss issues that you encounter as you work on creating resource descriptions in Sinopia. A facilitator will be present to help beginners get started, but participants with any level of experience are welcome to attend and create descriptions.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
For this first working hour, we would like to focus on creating descriptions for basic print monographs, ideally monolingual. Use a book you have at your desk, or feel free to create a description based on a record in OCLC or your local catalog.
