- How and why the Kōtui Cataloguing Working Group creates training videos
Rebecca Keenan, Cataloguer, Dunedin Public Libraries
Based on Kōtui consortium member requests for training resources, the Cataloguing Working Group (CWG) is creating short training videos, each focused on a specific topic. These are aimed at cataloguing beginners, staff with minimal cataloguing experience, or those looking to refresh/reaffirm their knowledge. In this presentation, we will provide background information about the CWG, outline our project parameters – including topics covered and processes used – and discuss where to from here.
