Cataloging vinyl records for the public library

Oldham County Public Library (KY)  is going to add vinyl records to our collection.

I need to learn how to catalog vinyl records!

Our ILS is TLC (The Library Corporation).

We hold music on compact disc in the collection. I know how to catalog that.

We do not have access to OCLC for records. I can look at records on WorldCat.

I have looked at ALA publications and online learning. Don't see specifically what I am looking for.

What is the best way to learn how to catalog vinyl records for a public library collection?

Thanks!

Re: Criminal investigation in mass media

1. Under LCC, works on the FBI  class in HV (there is a specific number for named police agencies there - as I
recall it was my first LCC proposal, almost 30 years ago).

2.  First set of subject headings would be the 610 for the agency and the generic 650 if needed (e.g. "Criminal
investigation", or perhaps "Secret service" or "Detectives").  You can check the data base to see what's
been used as a 650 with the FBI as the first 610.

3.  If there is also a special discussion of a named TV show,  you can add a 630 for the TV show as well as related
650s (such as "Criminal investigation in mass media").

4.  If it is an annual report, it is best to keep the headings very general unless you are certain that they will
discuss some topic every year.  The fact that one year is on a "most wanted program" doesn't warrant  a
heading for a periodicals, since the follow year it might be on some new topic (e.g. drones in criminal
investigation, or mind melds in criminal investigation, whatever).

Fwd: semantic web - ontologies

Aloha

I am trying to find out colleagues / students / practitioners who include
in their work aspects of semantic ontologies as framed in the Semantic Web
Project http://www.w3.org/standards/semanticweb/ontology

I would like the be aware of their experience with literature used in their
teaching, research and practice as I am trying to update related readings
and activities in some parts of my courses on user centered design of
information / communication systems, digital libraries, relational
databases, Information Architecture for the WWW, and personalized systems.

In those courses we cover concepts of knowledge representation,
organization and management introducing semantic-ontological modeling of
content (disciplines) and users (personal ontologies for user modeling)

In my research on homeless use of information / communication technologies
I am considering the creation of an ontology of homelessness to facilitate
web-based information access, sharing and collaboration among stakeholders

Please reply off-list and | or forward this message to anyone you think
would be interested in sharing his / her experience with me.

With appreciation for any help

The opposite question can also be asked: why ever include jurisdiction?

It all goes back to Lubetzky's "Is this rule necessary?" which I think 
will have to be asked by the present generation sooner or later. In our 
age of efficiency management, organizational restructuring and 
decreasing budgets (which do not seem to be improving substantially 
anytime soon), we need to find out for which constituency/constituencies 
each bit of information is necessary. If something is found to be 
useless for 99% of the users, it will probably be jettisoned. It is much 
better to decide such questions calmly and in full knowledge of the 
facts rather than screaming at the last moment because "We can't 
continue to do everything! Something's gotta give!" and dumping 
overboard all kinds of things that may be very important to certain 
constituencies and retaining other parts that may be useless. It happens 
all the time; certainly it happens in libraries.

In the present case, with MARC21 we already supply jurisdiction. If it 
is seen as so important, a few lines of code could display the 
jurisdiction in the 008 automatically and catalogers would not have to 
do any more work than they have always done. Managers might then decide

Subject: [sncsla] Sierra Nevada Chapter SLA Summer Workshop: Cataloging for non-catalogers, 8/17

Greetings!

The Sierra Nevada Chapter of SLA is excited to announce our next workshop happening August 17, 2015. Have
you been assigned cataloging duties but don't have sufficient skills to complete the task? Well, this is
the program for you!

This workshop will cover the basics of cataloging in a six-hour overview, using these online tools: OCLC
Connexion, Classification Web, Cataloger's Desktop, and RDA Toolkit. Topics to be covered will include
highlights of the new cataloging code, RDA (Resource Description & Access), and participants will do
sample cataloging of at least one book, sound recording and DVD.  Although there will not be enough time to
personally critique students' work, all may follow the instructor's cataloging and catalog the same
items themselves using OCLC and are encouraged to pose questions as he progresses.

Workshop information

Registration:

Registration is $50 for SLA Members, $75 for non-SLA members, and $25 for students/SLA retired. Please
register by Friday, August 14th : space is limited!

Re: Recording place of publication

Does it have a field to indicate the place of publication (equivalent to the current 008 or in some libraries
the 752)?  Having no place to indicate the country of publication would discourage transcriptions that
lack the information.

BIBFRAME segments the publication statement just like MARC does now: place,=  name, and date. There's also
a separate copyright date element available.

Re: Recording place of publication

BIBFRAME replaces MARC, not RDA.  The real question is whether we will lose other ways to record place of
publication, so that the 264 becomes the only place to record that information.  RDA leans toward
transcribing from the resource, but all of our instincts are to give more information regardless of what
the publisher thought important enough to put in the book.

Re: Recording place of publication

As a publisher, I have often wondered what we mean by "place of 
publication" on a title page. I feel required to include it because it 
is expected in the book world, but the way things work today I'm not 
sure what we mean by it. I have heard that it is supposed to refer to 
the location of the publisher's main editorial office, and that is how I 
have interpreted it. But although we have a main office location for 
legal purposes, our participating editors are geographically 
distributed. Originally, the location given on the title page was the 
location of the printing press that printed the books, but that ended a 
long time ago. What do you understand "place of publication" to mean, 
really? And do you think it is a bit of information that will be phased 
out as obsolete?
