Online with the CMC Webinars Restart this Month!
The Cataloging Maintenance Center's Online with the CMC webinars are restarting this August! Learn the nuances of cataloging and collection discoverability in 20 minutes when you attend these brief, 15- to 20-minute webinars. Led by CMC cataloging and metadata experts, these sessions cover a different challenging or interesting cataloging special topic each month, such as examining accessibility in cataloging and how to use some of the less-common MARC fields. A 40-minute Q&A session follows each presentation, allowing participants to seek clarification or ask about additional cataloging topics. Registration is required. View the entire Online with the CMC schedule on the CMC webpages.
