Are you new to the wonderful world of copy cataloging?  Maybe you haven’t thought about cataloging since library school and your new job requires a memory jog? 

Well, here are some resources to jumpstart your skills:

Additional Resources: 
Need a little more than copy cataloging?  ALA’s Association for Library Collections and Technical Services (ALCTS) has some free webinar archives, including a lot on RDA that might interest more seasoned staff.  Their archive includes one of my all-time favorite webinar titles called, Cataloging Icky Things (DVD’s, Playaways, etc.), here.  There’s even a sequel called Cataloging More Icky Things!  Love it. 

Last but not least of course, the Library of Congress also has many great cataloging resources for the more advanced and academic set with their Catalogers Learning Workshop.
