INTRODUCTION TO AUTHORITIES (2 Days)  

 

Have you ever spent a lot of time researching different names to find all the works by an author, or given up on a subject search (e.g., Pigs) when you just couldn't think of the word the cataloger must have used (Swine)? If so, just think how your patrons must feel!

 

Authority control enhances OPAC access for your patrons, so it is a vitally important function of cataloging. In this example-packed workshop, you will learn how to read MARC authority records (which are very different to bibliographic records), and be introduced to the basic principles of authority control.

 

We'll cover:

Day 1

o        some definitions;

o        an overview of why we need to establish headings and provide cross-references;

o        keeping up with changes;

 

Day 2

 

Attendees should have a good understanding of AACR and MARC cataloging, and some idea of the way their system indexes their records.

 

Handouts with examples and worksheets will be provided.

 

Intended audience:

Experienced catalogers and systems people in charge of library automation systems (cataloging experience recommended for the latter).

Anticipated goal:

At the conclusion of this workshop, you should understand what authority control is, why it is important, how you can get it done on your retrospective file, how you can keep it up on your new records, and how to read, edit and create authority records in MARC format.

Recommended prerequisites:

MARC21 in Your Library, Book Blitz I, Book Blitz II

Required text:
