Course Description

Kits are a collection of materials, sometimes created by a library and sometimes by a publisher or vendor. It is important that kits be easily identified and distinguished from the individual included titles, both by patrons and catalogers. Because the variety of materials found in kits makes them non-traditional, kits can be challenging to catalog. This session will cover the common questions faced when cataloging kits and offer solutions.

Learning objectives for this session include
  • Define kits and understand their place in library collections.
  • Identify challenges related to cataloging kits.
  • Identify MARC fields important for the cataloging of kits.
