Cataloging staff who work at Resource Sharing Alliance (RSA) member libraries are invited to attend a group viewing of the ALCTS webinar "Just Catalog It! Providing Access to 3-D Materials" on Wednesday, November 15, 2017 from 1:00-2:00 pm at the RAILS East Peoria Service Center.

If you are interested in attending this webinar but unable to join us at RAILS East Peoria, please see the ALCTS web site for registration information.

Below is the webinar description from the ALCTS web site:

"If we expect our users to be able to find our collections of games and three-dimensional materials, we must catalog them. We will explain how to catalog these materials using current cataloging standards. We also will discuss how to increase the discoverability of these catalog records by applying facets and genre terms. Facets allow the user to narrow searches by choosing clearly defined subcategories. Genre terms allow the user to search for particular types of resources. We will share our experiences in applying current cataloging standards, facets, and genre terms to meet user needs when cataloging a large collection of tabletop games.

Learning Outcomes
Upon completion, attendees will:
- Understand why games and other three-dimensional materials must be cataloged if they are to be accessible to users
- Understand how discovery layers in the catalog will enhance user access to games and other three-dimensional materials
- Understand how genre terms will enhance discovery of games and other three-dimensional materials
