5 Cataloging Resources for Your Librarian Toolbox

Amanda MayThere are a multitude of cataloging resources available for free on the Internet.  Here are five of my favorites:

Cataloguer’s Toolbox – Cataloguer’s Toolbox is a large collection of cataloging resources.  The resources are arranged by a particular cataloging activity, such as authority work or subject analysis.

Cataloging and Acquisitions (Library of Congress) – This site provides cataloging resources made available through the Library of Congress.  It is divided in a variety of cataloging topics, such as descriptive cataloging, subject headings, and classification.

MARC Standards (Library of Congress) – This is an online resource that includes the standards for bibliographic, authority, holdings, classification, and community formats in the machine-readable form.

Dewey.info – Dewey.info is a platform for Dewey Decimal Classification data on the Internet.  It will quickly help you identify the meaning behind a specific Dewey number.

OCLC Classify – Classify is an OCLC research prototype that helps you assign the classification number and subject heading for various resources.
