Title
¬A Chinese challenge : utilizing students for special cataloging projects
Source
Cataloging and classification quarterly. 12(1990) no.1, S.87-101
Year

Abstract
The Texas A & M University Modern Languages Department has been expanding its curriculum to include courses in Chinese. To support this curriculum, the Evans Library has recently acquired titles in Chinese. The Original Cataloging Department did not have the language expertise necessary to catalog these books in a timely manner. This project examined the feasibility of hiring student assistants with language expertise to assist the original catalogers. A graduate student, fluent in Chinese, was hired to transliterate the title page and verso, and provide descriptive information for fifty-five Chinese books. The student was also asked to provide a brief translation to assist in establishing LC Subject Headings and LC Classification numbers. Items for which copy was found on OCLC acted as a control for the accuracy of transliteration. Original catalogers then prepared the bibliographic records for the remaining titles. Utilizing the student's language expertise resulted in the processing of materials in a timely manner benefiting the university community.
