Cataloging Boot Camp

The Cataloging Boot Camp training curriculum was designed through a partnership between the Illinois OCLC User Group (IOUG), the Illinois Statewide Cataloging Standards Committee, and three legacy regional library systems: the Lewis & Clark Library System, Shawnee Library System, and Rolling Prairie Library System. The curriculum was developed in an effort to address the core competencies required by the Illinois Statewide Cataloging Standards for copy catalogers and as a tool to educate copy cataloger instructors.

The training curriculum is organized in eleven sessions and can be delivered as a four day workshop or broken into stand alone sessions.  The sessions may be taught in any order that is appropriate for the audience. The goal of Copy Cataloging Boot Camp is to train new instructors using a standardized curriculum.
