The Serials Cataloging Cooperative Training Program (SCCTP) provides standardized training materials and trained trainers in the field of continuing resources. Rather than providing the actual training workshops, SCCTP relies on library associations, networks, and institutions to sponsor workshops, using SCCTP materials and a team of trainers.
The vision of the Serials Cataloging Cooperative Training Program (SCCTP) is to increase the pool of knowledgeable serials and integrating resource catalogers and raise the quality of cataloging records contributed to shared databases. The educational components of the program are designed to be affordable, authoritative, and effective. The program will be evaluated on an ongoing basis to ensure cooperation among sponsoring agencies, ease of administration, adequate funding, and attainment of educational objectives.
The Cooperative Online Serials (CONSER) Program, a component of the Program for Cooperative Cataloging (PCC) coordinates the program. The North American Serials Interest Group (NASIG), American Library Association's Serials Education Committee, and OCLC network affiliates have contributed to various aspects of the program.
There are four basic components to SCCTP:
