Description (from the SCCTP site http://www.loc.gov/acq/conser/scctp/courdesc.html)

This course provides the basic principles of creating holdings records and publication patterns. 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 instructions and exercises are system-neutral but the course includes time for discussion of local system implementation.

Audience

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.

The workshop will be held Thursday and Friday Feb. 28-Mar. 1 at the University of Irvine, in room SL 104 in the Science Library.

How can Libraries participate in bringing control to this chaotic explosion of information?
