Subject : Cataloguing training on early maps now open for booking

CILIP Rare Books and Special Collections Group (RBSCG) are pleased to be 
offering training on cataloguing rare maps using DCRM(C).

Option 1: British Library, London, Monday 5 September, 10.00-16.30

Option 2: The John Rylands Library, Manchester, Tuesday 6 September, 

(Please note identical training is offered on both days)

Through lectures and visual aids workshop participants will be 
introduced to Descriptive Cataloguing of Rare Materials (Cartographics), 
or DCRM(C). The workshop will focus on the descriptive portions of the 
bibliographic record, following the scope of DCRM(C), with special 
emphasis on the differences between Descriptive Cataloguing of Rare 
Materials (Books) and DCRM(C).

The workshop is suitable for those with working cataloguing experience 
who wish to be introduced to rare cartographic materials cataloguing 
according to DCRM(C). Participants should have working experience in 
MARC AACR2 cataloguing using Descriptive Cataloguing of Rare Materials 
(Books) and/or Cartographic Materials: A Manual of Interpretation for AACR2.

The workshop will be given by: Todd Fell, Head of Rare Book Cataloguing, 
Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, Yale University.

Tea and coffee are provided but attendees will need to make their own 
arrangements for lunch.

This training is offered at a cost of £50 for members of the CILIP RBSCG 
and £80 for non-members. To book your place, please contact Tanya Kirk 
on tanya.kirk at bl.uk, quoting your CILIP membership number (if 
applicable) and indicating which day you would like to attend.

We are offering two free train-the-trainer places for this course for 
cataloguers who are interested in becoming RBSCG DCRM(C) cataloguing 
trainers and who commit themselves to giving the same workshop in the 
future. If you are interested in the offer, please contact Iris O’Brien 
(iris.o’brien at bl.uk) with a short statement about why you would like to 
become a trainer.
