One of the main reasons for starting Beginning Cataloguing was to offer cost-effective training.
The Beginning Cataloguing Online School offers courses on Cataloguing and Bibliography. At the moment, our featured course is Beginning Bibliography, which offers a basic training in techniques for bibliographic research and description.
We are always happy to quote for inhouse training, and are proud to meet the business confidentiality needs of all our clients. The best way to get in touch is to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Example of Bespoke Training
One high-profile training we developed and delivered was for Awen Libraries, who obtained a grant from the Kathleen Cooks Fund at Cilip Cymru for six weeks of bespoke online training for their team. We delivered it via the Beginning Cataloguing Online School, using Zoom for realtime meetings, with homework between each session. Materials were designed using a mixture of examples from the Bridgend Library collection and the books in Anne’s home in Essex.
