DD85142468A3B4111B229B89F2C3D9CD4D1CB&>  is offering the popular
cataloging classes-Marc 21 in Your Library and Just for Copy Cats-in
Portland, Oregon. Both courses will be presented in comprehensive
sessions that are designed to support and enhance basic cataloging skill
sets.

MARC 21 in Your Library
MARC 21 in Your Library is an introduction to all things MARC. It
defines what the coding standard is and clarifies how it ties in with
our cataloging rules to work in your library's catalog. Upon completion
of the course, you should be able to read a MARC record, speak the MARC
language, and understand how errors in MARC coding affect an OPAC. 
This one-day, in-person class is not only intended for beginning
catalogers; it also has appeal to a broader audience of library
professionals. Acquisitions people, managers, even library directors,
could also benefit from this class. Aside from understanding the basis
of the records that form the backbone of library information systems, it
will also provide them with the ability to communicate more effectively
with the folks in and around their institution who already "speak MARC."

Just for Copy Cats 
Just for Copy Cats is a two-day, in-person, basic introduction to copy
cataloging, which primarily covers four subject areas: finding
cataloging records you can copy; some of the challenges of doing so;
some of the neglected database issues involved; and a brief look at
important editing. Upon completion of this course, you should be able to
find and copy book records that accurately reflect your items. 
For a beginning cataloger, this workshop is the second step in your
journey to excellence (your first step should be MARC21 in Your
Library). A more experienced copy cataloger might also benefit from the
course, finding nuggets of new information previously undiscovered.
