NCompass Live: Making Your Catalog Work for Your Community: How to Develop Local Cataloging Standards - Recorded Online Session 


When it comes to cataloging and classification, consistency obtained through standards is important. That does not mean you have to be at the mercy of the national standards. This presentation will cover many ways in which you can adapt catalog records to make sure they work for your library users from homegrown classification systems to local subject headings and offer tips to make sure these practices still provide the consistency needed in a good catalog.

Presenter: Emily Nimsakont, Head of Cataloging & Resource Management, Schmid Law Library, University of Nebraska College of Law.
