Organization of Materials

  • be able to determine how a library collection is organized and why it is organized that way.
  • be able to assign appropriate subject headings to an item
  • be able to determine the best classification number for an item.
  • understand what a MARC record is and how MARC records are used in your library's catalog.

Class starts on April 2, 2018, and all assignments must be completed by April 27, 2018.

This is an online class. Class participants read or view materials, discuss issues in a forum, and complete projects and assignments. The instructor offers feedback and explanations of material. The class is asynchronous -- class participants do not need to be online at any particular time; however, there are due dates for assignments, which must be met.

A few days before the class starts, class participants will be sent information about accessing the class.
