About this item

While there are many cataloging texts, very few are written specifically for library support staff. This is the one and only book purposefully aligned with the new American Library Association – Library Support Staff Certification (LSSC) 2012 competency standards for Cataloging and Classification.

Using this handbook as a guide, readers will be able to perform the ALA-LSSC cataloging and classification competencies and the new RDA, FRBR, and BIBFRAME standards listed below:

  • apply and manage the appropriate processes, computer technology, and equipment for cataloging and classification.

  1. apply principles of Resource Description and Access (RDA) and the Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR) when creating cataloging records.

  1. apply principles of the Bibliographic Framework Initiative (BIBFRAME) to create cataloging records.

  1. apply the four high-level classes, or entities, in the BIBFRAME Model:
  1. BIBFRAME Work
  2. BIBFRAME Instance
  3. BIBFRAME Authority
  4. BIBFRAME Annotation

  • use the basic cataloging and classification tools, both print and online, including bibliographic utilities and format standards.

  • know the basics of standard metadata formats and cataloging rules to select, review, and edit catalog records, and to generate metadata in various formats.

  • and more!
