Do you need to build a foundation in the fundamentals of law cataloging? Then you'll want to register for the AALL Professional Development Workshop Basic Law Cataloging, which will be held March 1, 2 and 3 in Chicago. (This program was rescheduled from September 2001.)
During this 2 ½ -day workshop, participants will learn about the key elements of law cataloging. A combination of presentations, group exercises and breakout sessions will focus on descriptive cataloging, choice of main entry and access points, LC subject headings, LC classification for U.S. legal materials, serials/looseleaf cataloging, MARC tagging, cataloging of electronic materials and authority work.
