Event Name:
Cataloging Unusual Items


Has anyone ever asked you to catalog a bicycle? Libraries have been adding more and more non-book materials to our catalogs: models, tools, toys… even ukuleles. This session will discuss content versus carrier for non-books, then walk through the most important descriptive data for any format. Build the confidence to catalog all your weirdest stuff!
Learning Objectives:
  • Identify content versus carrier fields in RDA MARC21 bib records
  • Include crucial descriptions to maximize searchability
  • Use a “weird stuff” template as a starting point in future cataloging
Misty Alvaro is the Materials Manager for Columbus Metropolitan Library, in charge of all cataloging and processing operations. They have worked in public, academic, and special libraries; in all functional areas from circulation and public services librarianship to special collections cataloging and management.
