Metadata Creation for Information Organization

Discussion Questions


Welcome to the UH LIS 605 Web page. LIS 605 is a very basic introduction to the concepts of cataloging and classification. We look at the some of the basic fields used in describing a book using the MARC (MAchine Readable Cataloging) format, how to identify and record the title of the work, publisher, physical details, series, and so forth. We discuss how to select and format the authorized form of an authorized name. We learn how to build a Library of Congress Subject Heading. We learn the basics of classifying a work using the Library of Congress Classification system and then the Dewey Decimal System.

If you are interested in becoming a full-time cataloger, you will also need to take LIS 606, the advanced cataloging course, in order to better prepare you for your career.
