Workshop - Music cataloging

Music Cataloging with Richard Smiraglia

When: June 14 – June 18th 2010
Where: University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee

This five-day workshop is designed for those who wish to gain a fuller understanding of the bibliographic control of music materials (scores, sound recordings, videorecordings) and their inherent bibliographic characteristics. Participants will gain experience working with the special problems of descriptive cataloging, authority control, subject analysis and classification of music materials. Working on site in the UWM Music Library, participants will experience a wide variety of problems in the description of music materials, and in the use of music reference sources for solving authority control problems including the construction of music uniform titles and music subject headings. Participants will work with AACR2 and LCRI and the MARC21 bibliographic format. RDA’s provisions for music materials will be reviewed as well. Participants will work with LCSH, relevant portions of the Subject Cataloging Manual and both DDC, and LCC for classifying music. Participants are also encouraged to bring real problems from their workplaces for group analysis. There also will be an overview of the requirements for the effective retrieval of music materials.
