In this class, participants will learn the criteria that is used to determine if a bibliographic record in the database is a match for an item in hand. We will look at effective search strategies for different formats of material, and the match points that are used when comparing an item to a record. We will also look at the differences between a monograph and a serial record. Searching will primarily be done in the SHARE Polaris database.

Attendees must have a login for Polaris
