Title
On-the-job training for cataloging and classification
Source
Cataloging and classification quarterly. 7(1987) no.4, S.69-78
Year

Abstract
Training for cataloging and classification within the Cataloging Department is discussed for two levels of staff, copy catalogers and original catalogers. A general pattern which moves from learning to catalog straightforward materials which require minimal editing to processing materials which are progressively more complex is described for copy catalogers. A survey of heads of cataloging departments reveals that there is a general feeling that cataloging and classification are being shortchanged in library school training and recommendations for such training are made. Training programs for original catalogers also follow a pattern, from working with LC copy to preparing original cataloging records. Some variations to the training patterns for each group are noted. The article concludes with a discussion of continuing education for both groups.
