Video materials make up a significant portion of today’s libraries’ collections. Attend this workshop to learn about copy and original cataloging of video recordings in a variety of formats, including DVDs, Blu-ray discs, and streaming video. Topics will include series/episodes, cast notes, editions, and access points.
This class will be held online from February 3 to March 9. To receive full credit, participants must complete all assignments by March 13th.
Class participants will access the course web site in order to read materials, discuss issues in a forum, and complete assignments. The class is held asynchronously, which means that participants are not required to be online at any particular time during the six weeks; however, there is a class schedule with due dates that participants are expected to meet. The instructor will interact with the participants during the course to offer feedback and provide explanations of material.
A few days before the class starts, class participants will be sent information about accessing the class.
