Competency #15 & #16
Demonstrate the ability to use applicable resource tools in cataloging; Demonstrate an understanding of and the ability to utilize copy cataloging.
Without a catalog of some sort, it would be impossible for a library to function. There are many resources available for copy cataloging. I am currently in the process of restoring the catalog for the Theodora House Library that was lost when the intern who created the library graduated. This will be done entirely through copy cataloging, using the Library of Congress’ Online Catalog as the main resource, along with a batch search/format/upload utility as yet to be determined.
