SCCTP Serial Holdings Workshop

This two-day workshop provides the basic principles of creating holdings records and publication patterns with a focus on serials. All materials are based on the MARC 21 Format for Holdings Data (MFHD) and ANSI/NISO Z39.71—1999. The course includes background information on why holdings are important and a brief description of the development of the standards and instructions and exercises on creating formatted and free text holdings and publication patterns. The second half day will be devoted to OCLC Local Holdings Records (OCLC Union List of Holdings).
The course is designed for those who are new to the MARC Holdings Format, including those who have created holdings records using other mechanisms (e.g., OCLC's local data record). It is designed primarily for those who will create holdings records but is also useful for managers and system designers wishing to know more about the format and its uses.

CONSER Standard Record Workshop

This workshop focuses on data elements required in the CONSER standard record. All materials are based on the CONSER standard record documentation and the LCRIs developed to cover new practices for the description of serials, including mandatory vs. optional elements, formulation of numbering statements, and uniform titles. It will also cover CONSER’s new practices in coding the MARC fixed and variable fields in OCLC.

This workshop consists of slide presentations with exercises on paper. Trainees will not be using a computer as part of the workshop.

This workshop is intended for catalogers who have been active catalogers and are familiar with AACR2R, MARC serials tagging, and fundamental approaches to serials cataloging. This course is designed as a supplement to other serials cataloging training and for those people wanting to catalog serials following the new CONSER standard.

This two-day workshop, organized by SCTPG and co-sponsored by NASIG and CLA-ACTSS, presents bibliographic control concepts, including specific metadata standards and applications. The goal of the workshop is to relate what library staff already know about library catalog metadata to digital library metadata, thereby preparing staff to apply their current knowledge to new areas. This instruction in bibliographic control practices will help them continue to play a significant role in shaping library services in the emerging digital information environment.
