Welcome to the course page for LIBR 511. In addition to this page the instructors will be growing LIBR511-specific, and not so specific, pages across UBC wiki. Check out our Cataloguing and Classification page for information on workflow. {On hold: Help us create an excellent glossary to acquiring cataloguing expertise over here.}

As a concluding assignment on our work students will evaluate catalogues, for their cataloguing. You may choose any catalogue you prefer at that time but for your information and consideration here are some we use in the course developement. Not all catalogues are created equal...
