Workshop announcement:
Basic Subject Cataloging Using LCSH
November 16-17, 2009   8:30-5:00
Multnomah County Library – Central Library
Portland, Oregon

This two-day workshop is designed to give attendees a solid foundation in the principles and practices of subject cataloging using LCSH, an introduction to the most important tools, and practice in formulating heading strings using subdivisions. It will be useful for those who are new to subject cataloging with LCSH but who have some basic knowledge of cataloging and the MARC formats. While not designed to cover advanced or specialized topics, the course will also be a useful review for experienced catalogers, especially those who supervise or train other catalogers. Some familiarity with MARC is helpful.
