Basic Creation of Name and Title Authorities explains the importance of authority control and provides tools for users to create MARC 21 authority records. The course includes the following topics:
The basics of the MARC 21 authority record
- Name authority standards for personal, corporate, conference, geographic names and uniform titles in local databases
- Constructing name authority records during class exercises
- Name authority records from the viewpoint of other library and information professionals not directly involved in cataloging
- Discussion of local system implementation and the PCC NACO shared database program
The course is designed for new catalogers and offers benefits for seasoned catalogers and those responsible for authority maintenance. Two modules address the needs of reference librarians, authority vendors, and library school professionals. A basic knowledge of the MARC 21 format is helpful.
The course is designed as a one and a half day workshop, consisting of 10.5 hours of instruction.
