Special Collections Cataloging Workshop (redux)
Through lectures, visual aids, and in-class exercises, workshop participants will be introduced to cataloging rare books and gain practical experience using Descriptive Cataloging of Rare Materials (Books) (DCRM(B)). The workshop will focus on the descriptive portions of the bibliographic record, following the scope of DCRM(B), and will attempt to answer the question “What is a Rare Book?” from a cataloging point of view. There will also be an overview of the issues surrounding the cataloging of artists’ books. Participants should have working knowledge of MARC 21-based AACR2 cataloging, and should bring a copy of DCRM(B), if possible. A brief reading assignment will be sent to participants upon registering for the workshop.

Managing Digitization Projects
Has your library been interested in beginning or continuing a digitization project? Have you come up against barriers to such an undertaking, be they large or small? At this workshop you will hear stories of digitization from the field, covering aspects from initial planning to ongoing maintenance, and the all things that come in-between. Our presenters will share with you what they have learned in carrying out their digitization projects, and provide you with tips and tools to apply to your own digitization needs. An afternoon question & answer panel will address your burning questions – if you have an in-depth or detailed question, please e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org so it may be shared with the panelists in advance.
