VTLIB 2014 Continuing Education Cataloging Workshop

 

This website and related resources were created for the attendees of the VTLIB Continuing Education Cataloging Workshops in April and May 2014: http://sites.google.com/site/vtlibcataloging/. This five day workshop is part of the Vermont Library Certification Program. Though this was a hands-on, instructed class, the slides and related resources can work as a stand-alone instruction for basic cataloging.
