Old Cataloging Documents
The Cataloging Working Group has responsibility, within the overall guidelines provided by the Content Access Policy and Technology Group and based on relevant state, national, and international standards, for formulating, documenting, and publicizing cataloging, classification, authority control, and holdings policy and principles for the Library's MARC-based collections. CWG will also propose changes as needed in the Library's overall content access principles and policy to the Content Access Policy and Technology Group. Members of the Cataloging Working Group will be thoroughly experienced with the functionality of the Voyager cataloging client and the effects of cataloging practice on the UIUC online catalog. They will collaboratively plan for Library-wide use of the Voyager cataloging client (current and future releases), maintain the Voyager tag tables, work to streamline existing practices and workflows associated with MARC operations, assist the ISCC Training Team in developing faculty/staff training sessions on MARC operations, and coordinate the upgrades and introduction of cataloging tools and rules (such as Connexion, Cataloger's Desktop, WebDewey, RDA, etc.) for the Library.
The charge of CWG will thus encompass responsibility for deciding issues of practical procedure, including authorizations, documentation and training, as well as policy.
