Survival Guide for a New Head of Cataloging/Metadata


There is a first time for everyone. It is my first time to take a journey as a head of metadata and cataloging in an academic-library environment. In addition to RDA and Bibframe, I as well as newly-appointed librarians under similar circumstances have to deal with decision-making, transformation and learning. The program aims to create a head-of-cataloging/metadata survival guide. It focuses on the type of solo original-catalogers’ duties, authority control including NACO, migration, e.g., pre-migration database cleanup and post-migration database maintenance, hiring and training, workflow transformation and departmental reorganization.
