Learning Outcomes

  1. Participants will be able to apply the new rules for continuing resources (serial and integrating) in a consistent and informed manner.
  2. Participants will be able to apply the K schedule tables in a consistent and informed manner.

This program is considered to be a follow-up to the Basic and Intermediate Cataloging Programs offered by AALL in 2002. The program will present an in-depth discussion of selected current descriptive, access, and subject issues that advance the knowledge learned in the previous programs and assist experienced catalogers in the field.

Overviews of the recent cataloging changes in serials, loose-leaf materials and websites will be presented, highlighting rule changes in AACR2, Library of Congress Rule Interpretations, MARC formats, CONSER manuals (paper and online). On Saturday, the focus will be on the newer law classification schedules (Asia, Africa, Pacific, international and religious).

Additional in-depth treatment includes: complex multi-volume sets; multiple records for electronic and paper versions of serials; session law problems; KZ current problem areas and crossover to K; and, application of the various tables within the K schedules.

Attendees are encouraged to submit questions on cataloging issues prior to the workshop. All posed questions will be addressed by the instructors during the program and the results of the problem solving discussions will be published in Technical Services Law Librarian.
