Abstract:
This is a PowerPoint presentation (33 slides) on Wednesday January 12, 2005 in Session 4.2: Electronic Resources: Current Practices, Employer Expectations, and Teaching Strategies, sponsored by the Technical Services Education SIG at the 2005 ALISE Conference, Boston, MA. In order to prepare entry-level catalogers and offer cataloging-related courses, this research identifies the technical skills and competencies that a student should possess for entering the library world. It reviews 495 position announcements for catalog librarians from September 1, 2000 and August 31, 2003 and presents some useful observations. By evaluating the findings, this research makes suggestions to the development of a core curriculum in cataloging education.
