Cataloging, at its core, is a virtual representation of physical material in the library, from books to DVDs to online resources like e-books. We take the material and give it an accurate description, allowing patrons using the online library catalog can find the material they are looking for. The best cataloging will show the differences between material make appropriate connections. Above all, cataloging allows patrons to find what they are looking for as easily as possible, taking into account that no one searches for something in the same way.
At SELCO, we provide a number of different cataloging services, including training, some collection management assistance, vendor loads, and original cataloging work.
