presented by PAIGE ANDREW

This basic maps cataloging workshop will primarily delve into the three descriptive areas of the bibliographic record that typically cause concern and consternation. Those three areas are:

Additionally, we will look at the fixed fields that are pertinent to cataloging cartographic materials, learn how to create a LC G-classification call number, and touch on subject analysis and possibly map facsimiles.The instructor’s primary goal is to build confidence in working with the details of these areas, as well as to teach the correct way to handle the data that goes into each.

We will learn to use the Natural Scale Indicator with a hands-on exercise, and will conclude with the attendees creating a brief descriptive record for a map.

Workshop attendees will receive a set of handouts as reference materials that touch on the entire range of descriptive and other elements contained in the bibliographic record for maps. The handouts cover not only the above-mentioned areas but also include a couple of bibliographies and several “ready reference” resources.

In addition, each attendee will receive a Natural Scale Indicator thanks to the map distributor company, MapLink.

Copies of Mr. Andrew’s book, Cataloging Sheet Maps, the Basics will be available for purchase at a discounted price as well.
