OhioNET: Fundamentals of Cataloging – Meet MARC (Session 2)

This introductory series explains basic cataloging concepts and processes for copy catalogers and demonstrates how to describe books. Each session includes practice, quizzes, and other learning engagement opportunities. It’s designed for anyone who is new to copy cataloging or returning to cataloging responsibilities.

  • learn the basic groups of MARC fields
  • highlight the most important areas of description
