Cataloging Roundtable


LACUNY’s Cataloging Roundtable meets once per semester in order to keep its members up-to-date on cataloging issues. Through workshops and presentations, members share their best practices and innovations, learn about cataloging procedures and standards, and work collaboratively to solve cataloging concerns that arise.
