Have you ever been curious of how library resources are cataloged or why records display in an OPAC the way they do? Wondered what catalogers and technical services staff do all day and was afraid to ask? Here is your chance to learn more about how an essential function of the library happens with this informative, friendly presentation by experienced cataloger and technical services librarian Jill Sherman. Topics covered will be Library of Congress subject headings, classification and other tools used to create the records that build the foundation of a library catalog.
