The Fundamentals of Series Authorities course introduces the concepts behind using and maintaining series statements in library catalogs. The course covers MARC 21 series authority records and bibliographic records for items in series. Materials include the following topics:
- Modules 1-4 on interpreting series statements in catalog records
- Modules 5-11 on creating series authority records
- Definitions of series and series authority control
- Creating series citations and series authority records
- Series qualifiers, numbering, and treatment
Modules 1-4 offer the library community at-large an overview of series authority issues. Modules 5-11 teach catalogers the skills of series authority creation. Previous experience with cataloging, name authorities, and the MARC formats is recommended. The course provides a useful review for experienced catalogers, especially those who supervise or train other catalogers.
The course is designed as a one-and-a-half to two-day workshop, consisting of 12 hours of instruction for those who attend sessions for all modules.
