Event Details

CILIP SWMN & CILIP Cataloguing and Indexing Group invite you to 1 day training on cataloguing.

This training is aimed at people who know nothing about cataloguing (or who have forgotten everything they once knew long ago). In a range of activities, you will find out what cataloguing is and why we do it; have a go at doing some basic cataloguing using the current international standard (RDA) and exchange format (MARC21); and leave with some resources you can use to keep up-to-date with your newly-gained cataloguing knowledge.

The trainers are from CILIP’s Cataloguing and Indexing Group. Anne Welsh is Lecturer in Library and Information Studies at University College London, where she teaches the core module in Cataloguing and optional modules in Advanced Cataloguing and in Historical Bibliography. Her co-authored book Practical Cataloguing (Facet, 2012) is a set text at iSchools nationally and internationally, and her second book, Cataloguing and Decision-Making in a Hybrid Environment is due out from Facet later this year. 

Katharine Whaite is currently completing her PhD studies in cataloguing history at University College London, where she has led classes in cataloguing and classification. She has previously worked at BPP University Library (Holborn), and Gray’s In Library, where she has also provided legal information training. She has published articles in Catalogue and Index and Information Research 


CIG has very kindly offered  sponsor one of the attendees at the Introduction to Cataloguing event. The sponsored person needs to be a CIG member, and the bursary covers the event registration, with the person having to cover their own travel costs.
