Do you currently create or anticipate creating cataloging records for your archival collections? Then you won’t want to miss this extensive revision of SAA's Archival Cataloging as a Component of Description (ACCD)—enhanced by the addition of the relationship with the new descriptive standard Describing Archives: A Content Standard, full MARC 21 coding, and a subject analysis and authority work as they apply to archival cataloging.


This workshop includes lecture, hands-on, and discussion components. Examples, provided by the workshop leaders and by the participants themselves, will enable you to leave the workshop feeling competent in constructing MARC 21 records in your own environment. 

Learning Outcomes: 
Identify the sources of information for an archival MARC 21 record, specific MARC 21 coding used in archival cataloging, and the relationship of archival cataloging records to other archival description and to bibliographic utilities
Crosswalk from Archives, Personal Papers, Manuscripts (APPM), and Encoded Archival Description (EAD) to MARC 21
Create fully viable MARC 21 records for archival materials
Who Should Attend: 

Anyone who currently creates or anticipates creating MARC 21 or MARC-style cataloging records for their archival collections
