Yale University Library has been kind to document and share their policies and procedures. This could be useful for examples of how to catalog a particular item.

The Special Libraries Cataloguing company in is based in Victoria, BC and was founded by J McRee (Mac) Elrod who shared his expertise and opinions (especially onĀ  the listserv autocat). I adapted their “cheat” sheets for my own personal use.


The Library of Congress’ Cataloger’s Learning Workshop has free training materials. Topics include LC subject headings, RDA and Bibframe.

Searching the Library of Congress catalog may be useful to see how they are using a subject heading. Searching your own catalog or other library/consortium’s can also be helpful.
