As online databases and web-based resources continue to proliferate, the
need for creating MARC metadata for integrating resources is
increasing.  The 2010 revision of the Integrating Resources Cataloging

create MARC metadata for websites and databases.  It provides guidance on
cataloging integrating resources with a focus on updating databases and
websites plus an incidental session on loose-leaf format. The course
covers AACR2 cataloging rules from chapters 9 and 12 and MARC21
coding.  This revision also reflects recent changes in cataloging
practices for integrating resources, including Provider Neutral Record,
CONSER Standard Record, and changes to MARC coding such as the repeatable
260 field.

This course is designed for catalogers who are new to cataloging
