Cooperative cataloging is not a new concept but the ease with which online resources can be accessed provides opportunities for cataloging projects which haven't existed previously.  There are few models for the cooperative cataloging of collection-based projects and those that exist have not been well publicized. This session will provide an overview of a number of projects developed by both the CONSER Program and the Council on East Asian Libraries (CEAL).  There are several considerations to be taken account when beginning a project.  These include:

  • Collection characteristics
  • Title list sources
  • Record reporting and distribution
  • Staffing and organizational support
  • Workflows, procedures and training
  • Strategies for managing ongoing collections

Because every cataloging project brings unique challenges and opportunities, the presenters will provide real-life examples from the projects they have worked on.
