I wrapped up cataloging print scores this week. I cataloged Symphony by David Ward-Steinman. I then had a meeting with my supervisor, Chuck, and we discussed my progress and goals. We have decided that I am making good progress. I have become familiar with online and paper resources that are used in cataloging music print material. I have also learned about the different levels of cataloging standards such as full, Pcc, etc., as well as local cataloging practices. I have been very happy with the records that I have produced in Marc and that have been added to IUCAT.
Chuck and I both feel like I have gotten a firm grasp of cataloging scores. My focus now will be shifting to catalog electronic dissertations. It will provide the opportunity to learn how to catalog electronic resources.
I did catalog one online dissertation this week: Devising methods for classical performers.
