Event Name:
Respecting Authority: An Intro to Subject Analysis for Copy Catalogers



Subject cataloging gets a bad rap as fussy and hard to learn. While mastery takes time, there are smaller steps copy catalogers can take to expand their knowledge and improve the use of subject terms in their catalogs. This brief workshop will introduce you to some of the most common subject systems, rules, and principles with a focus on Library of Congress Subject Headings.
Learning objectives:

  • Attendees will gain an introductory understanding of subject heading systems and basic rules for their application
  • Attendees will acquire tools and workflows to assess the quality of subject headings in copy cataloging records
  • We will discuss the role of cataloger's judgment and bias in subject cataloging

Misty Alvaro is the Catalog Librarian for the Columbus Metropolitan Library. She received her MLIS after achieving a degree in Japanese and Italian at the Ohio State University.
