SURVEY TO ASSESS SERIALS CATALOGING TRAINING NEEDS NOW AVAILABLE ON CONSER
The CONSER Program, in conjunction with the ALCTS Serials Section Education
Committee and the North American Serials Interest Group, is interested in
identifying training needs for serials cataloging. Specifically, the groups
are interested in determining the kinds of training needed and the preferred
format of the training. The results of the survey will be used in the
development of various types of training programs and packages for
professional and paraprofessional serials catalogers. We also anticipate the
need for continuing education for experienced serials catalogers as the
publications and the rules with which we describe them change.
The survey is available on the CONSER homepage
(http://lcweb.loc.gov/acq/conser; click on What's new). It can be completed
and submitted online or you can print it out and mail or fax it in to the
address given on the form. The survey should be completed by AULs for
Technical Services, Heads of Cataloging, or equivalent staff. Catalogers,
please forward this message, as appropriate.
Please complete and submit by March 20th. Thank you for your participation!
