cataloger from Pennsylvania State University.*

This introductory workshop will help get you started in cataloging maps and
can serve as a starting point for cataloging other cartographic materials.
Take your basic knowledge of cataloging and learn where maps and other
cartographic materials differ.

The skills to be taught include title selection, how to correctly measure a
map, scale calculation and how to record other mathematical data correctly,
and the notes specifically required for cartographic materials.

Emphasis will be on sheet maps, with some discussion of atlases.

Target audience: Technical services staff with some cataloging experience
and knowledge of AACR2, MARC and OCLC cataloging interfaces.

Mr. Paige G. Andrew is Maps Cataloging Librarian at the Pennsylvania State
University Libraries. He is an active participant in the NACO and SACO
programs, helping to create new name and subject headings for the Library of
Congress' Name Authority File.

Paige's scholarly pursuits include publishing in the area of his specialty,
cataloging sheet maps, including several articles and a "how-to" book titled
