Surviving Cataloging Class

Surviving Cataloging Class
by Tracy Wasserman.

Many LIS students dread cataloging/classification class, a required course in some library schools. cataloging/classification is an integral part of the value of librarians to society, as there is more information to organize than ever before.Librarians should all understand how to catalog and classify information, and be comfortable with this skill.  And understanding the value of cataloging goes a long way to staying motivated in cataloging class. 
  Here are resources to help:

  • Use online cataloging tools
  • Follow AutoCat and other cataloging listservs
  • Practice / Save your work 
  • Embrace the humor
