Copy cataloging of monographs on Alma requires attention to detail and accuracy. Patrons who use our online catalog need to be able to find the items they want; DRDS/Cataloging Department staff are responsible for enabling them to find their items.
After training with this manual the assistant should be able to:
Check a book against the Alma record and confirm it is the correct record.
Know MARC tagging for basic parts of the bibliographic record
Be able to do basic editing to the bibliographic record
Construct a call number for the item
Add the call number and holdings to the holding record
