Electronic Information Solutions Inc, in partnership with University of the East, will hold a workshop on Machine-Readable Cataloging (MARC21) at University of the East Library, on October 27-28, 2014. This is the twentieth (20th) edition of our MARC21 Workshop series which includes two days of intensive training on two kinds of MARC21 formats:

RDA Ready

The current workshop also includes lectures on RDA (Resource Description and Access), which replaced AACR2 in 2013, and how changes in MARC 21 format will accomodate this new standard.

We have dubbed this as a REVOLUTION as it revolutionizes the way you do cataloging. Be part of a REVOLUTION in librarianship!

Why You Must Attend This Course

This MARC Workshop aims to arm Librarians with skills to catalog library materials using MARC format, and to create MARC records using inexpensive pre-processing software, so that the library's MARC database becomes ready for automation. In addition, using the appropriate software, the librarian can produce card catalogs at the same time that they create the MARC records, making the transition from printed to electronic records easier.

EISI believes that much wasted effort can be prevented if Philippine libraries which are not yet automated can make MARC records as a by-product of their current card production & printing procedures. Those who are already into automation can benefit from the better understanding of MARC, enabling them to produce better quality MARC records for their online public access catalogs (OPACs).

The attendees will use internet-connected computers located within the library or training room.

Hands-on Cataloging, Usable output

The participants will be exposed to MARC concepts and actual cataloging practices for various library materials, including multimedia, using books and library materials of their choice. They are expected to produce MARC records ready for importation to any MARC-compliant library system.
