CatSIG is pleased to announce another round of The MARC of Quality (TMQ) cataloguing workshops in September 2011. Registrations can be sent now, or when we re-advertise at a later date.  This year, the following workshops will be offered as concurrent on-site sessions (in Auckland) +  live webinars in September:



MARC21 IN YOUR LIBRARY

This course is an introduction to MARC21 and how it is meant to work in a library automation system. It explains what the MARC standards are and how those standards tie in with our cataloguing rules (AACR) to help cataloguers create data that will function effectively in a library catalogue. Target audience: directors, reference people, acquisitions people, copy cataloguers, beginning cataloguers, and experienced but untrained cataloguers.



There are two discrete parts to MARC21 in your Library:

Part One of this course consists of a series of web-casts and web-based mini-courses and covers the underlying fundamentals of MARC and bibliographic information. Duration: approx. 5 hrs; presenter: D. Fritz; site/dates: on-demand, anytime.  Click here to access the Part One modules<http://www.marcofquality.com/webinars/webm21.html> (for free)



Part Two of this course is provided as a one-day, face-to-face, training session at a host site, which is also concurrently available as a live, online broadcast, and covers the core codes that are most commonly found in MARC records, and their functions.

JUST FOR COPY CATS (2 Days)

Copy cataloguing is not the same as original cataloguing; it has its own special procedures and guidelines. This workshop outlines the basic principles of copy cataloguing in a MARC record environment. It will introduce you to the art of: finding cataloguing records that you can copy; ensuring that those records really match your resources; and fixing the really important things that might need fixing in those records. Recommended prerequisites: MARC21 in Your Library. Target audience: acquisitions people, copy cataloguers, beginning cataloguers, and experienced but untrained cataloguers.



There are two discrete parts to Just for Copy Cats:

Part one of this course is made up of a series of four, short, free, webcasts or self-paced modules.  Click here to access the JCC Part One modules<http://www.marcofquality.com/webinars/webjcc.html> (for free)
