To promote inter-departmental collaboration, our presentation shows real examples of some of the many services your cataloging department can offer to support your digital projects: 

  • Organizing your serials/series and their numbering and sequencing for digitizing and indexing

  • Repairing or creating MARC bibliographic records representing the print format of your objects, and

  • Mapping the resulting MARC data to spreadsheets, or other schema as needed (i.e., Dublin Core, MODS etc.)

  • Preparing MARCXML records for HathiTrust

  • Using XSLT to crosswalk data from one schema to another

  • Use MARCEdit and/or other tools to efficiently normalize, refine and correct data

  • Develop strategies, workflows, tools, and documentation enabling staff to quickly create metadata for unregistered collections.
