This week I continued on with cataloging the sounds recording that I started at the beginning of the semester. I worked on adding 382 to records, which is medium of performance. This is something that I have done a bit in the past, so it is not a completely new experience for me. I read up on the field by reading MLA’s Best Practices for lcmpt and lcgft. A lot of this really helped me to make the most appropriate cataloging decisions when filling out this field in my records.
Most of it is pretty straightforward, there are a lot of different subfields that one can use to convey the instrumentation to the reader. As I continue on these records, I am updating them on OCLC as well. The end goal is that I will have records on OCLC that are publishable.
