Cataloging music is a unique and sometimes tricky process, even for experienced catalogers. At both the conceptual level and the microscopic level, musical materials are different from other library resources, and if you’re new to cataloging these materials, it can be tough to get started.

In this new workshop, cataloging experts and Music Library Association Cataloging and Metadata Committee members Mary Huismann and Linda Blair will provide you with a foundation in music cataloging. They will teach you basic musical concepts and demonstrate how to solve more complex problems, including music-specific encoding and subject access issues. You’ll learn the essentials of music cataloging and be provided with additional resources you can use to further expand your knowledge.
