This class is approved for the NLC Cataloging Certification Program. Courses are open only to Nebraska residents or those who are employed by a Nebraska library.
Why would you use a 651 MARC tag instead of a 610 tag? What is the difference between a 260 tag and a 264 tag? Where do you put the note about large print?
If you have questions about MARC catalog records or would like to learn more about entering records into your local system, join us for this seven-session asynchronous online workshop.
Topics will include:
- Fixed & variable fields, subfields, tags
- Title and statement of responsibility
- Physical description
- Subject headings
- Main and added entries
This class will be held online from August 3rd to September 18th.
Class participants will access the course website in order to read materials, discuss questions/issues in discussion boards, and post assignments. The instructor will interact with participants through discussion boards and optional web chats in order to offer feedback and provide explanations of material.
To receive full credit, participants must complete all assignments.
Prerequisite: Basic skills “Organization of Materials” or some library automation experience.
To register: Go to Understanding MARC 21 Bibliographic Records in the Nebraska Library Commission Training Portal. Registration closes JULY 26th.
The Continuing Education/Training Grants are back this year and the applications are still open until Friday (12/7)!
The purpose of these grants is to assist Nebraska libraries to improve the library services provided to their communities through continuing education and training for their library personnel and supporters. Successful applications will show how the continuing education and/or training proposed will support the library’s mission.
This year we are offering grants in three different areas: attending an out-of-state professional conference, taking an online CE course, and other larger CE group/staff projects.
Applications are due December 7, 2018
Applications will be evaluated and applicants notified by January 11, 2019
For more details about filling out the applications, the archived session “NCompass Live: 2018 Continuing Education/Training and Internship Grants” is also available.
If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact Holli Duggan.
