Welcome to Three Catalogers Walk Into a Blog.

This blog is the outcome of several successful programs at the Illinois Library Association’s Annual Conference and Reaching Forward. The original blurb for this program:

“Help! What’s the MARC tag for an award note? How do you catalog an MP3 file? Is there anyone out there who can help me transliterate a Russian language title page? A panel of librarians will discuss tips, tricks, and online resources that cna help you find the answers to your tricky (or sticky) cataloging questions.”

Our hope is continue to highlight resources (mostly online) that will help the cataloger in their everyday and not so everyday tasks of cataloging.
