New video formats - Jay Weitz, OCLC
As some formats become obsolete and new ones emerge, librarians find themselves dealing with items that were unknown just a few years ago. This workshop will discuss some familiar and not-so-familiar formats and the cataloging difficulties they create. Participants are encouraged to provide examples of challenges they have encountered while cataloging new formats.
Streaming video - Marielle Veve, University of Tennessee Knoxville SIS
Realia - Suzie DeGrasse, Athens (Ga.) Regional Library System
For both new and experienced catalogers wishing a more in-depth treatment of cataloging this format. This workshop will be based on OLAC's "Best Practices for Cataloging Streaming Media"; it will cover file types, fixed fields, chief source of information, separate vs. single- record approach, and aggregators.
We will explore the playful and fun aspects of cataloging through realia: beyond the usual kit, toy or specimen. The session will include an overview of the historical anxiety towards cataloging the "weird stuff", an introduction to the basics of various schemas and frameworks like RDA, CCO, CDWA and MARC for items, hands-on bibliographic descriptions, and a banishment of mystification exercise.
