Courses are open only to Nebraska residents or those who are employed by a Nebraska library.
This class provides the basic principles of serials cataloging for original and copy cataloging. Topics will include title changes and when to create a new record, what to edit when working with copy, and how to determine the chief source for title transcription.
Classes will be held online from April 5 to May 7. In order to receive credit for the class all assignments must be completed by May 10 AND you must receive a 75%, or above, for the course.
Class participants will access the course web site in order to read materials and complete projects and assignments. The class is held asynchronously, which means that participants are not required to be online at any particular time during the five 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.
This class is approved for the NLC Cataloging Certificate Program.
