Library 105B Class is A Go for September

Those of you who petitioned to have Library 105B re-instated will be pleased to know that the course will be offered in the Fall 2007. To ensure that the class is a go please register as soon as possible.

Per Mrs. Kim:

We have received some requests from our program students and San Jose MLS program students for offering Lib 105B: Introduction to Classification and Subject Access (3 units). With Krista Goguen's efforts, PCC has approved this addition.

It will be offered on Saturday 9:00 a.m.--12:20 p.m. The class begins on September 1, Saturday and ends on December 15, 2007, Saturday. If you want to advance your skills in cataloging, please sign up this class. If you have not completed Lib 105A at PCC, contact me for permission to take the class procedures.

If you have worked in libraries or if you have prior experience in cataloging go for it. If you have no idea of how to use MARC, AACR2 or to perform searches in WorldCat you might want to begin some heavy duty studying over the summer.

I enjoyed the class but it can be challenging for total newbies to cataloging.
