SCCTP Workshop: Electronic Serials Cataloging
1 1/2 Day Session: Wed. June 3, 9AM-5PM; Thurs. June 4, 9AM-Noon
NASIG Member: $225
Non-member: $275

Electronic Serials Cataloging Workshop, developed by the Serials
Cooperative Cataloging Training Program (SCCTP) under the CONSER
program, is designed as a hands-on training course for cataloging
electronic serials distributed through the Web. This workshop is
based on Anglo-American Cataloging Rules (AACR), 2nd edition,
including the 2001 amendments and the revised edition published in
2002. It incorporates key revisions of chapter 9, "Electronic
resources" and chapter 12 "Continuing resources" that apply to
electronic serials, but is not a comprehensive course on serials
cataloging. The course is also based on Library of Congress Rule
Interpretations, the MARC 21 format, and CONSER specific policies and
practices set forth in the CONSER Cataloging Manual and CONSER Editing Guide.
The curriculum includes six lessons: Introduction; Cataloging an
online serial; Aggregations and packages; Online versions; Changes
that affect cataloging; Case studies.

Audience: The course is designed for those who have previous serials
cataloging experience.

Speakers: Linda Geisler and Esther Simpson, Library of Congress
