Online with the CMC Webinars
Learn the nuances of cataloging and collection discoverability in 20 minutes when you attend the Cataloging Maintenance Center’s Online with the CMC. These brief, 15- to 20-minute webinars, led by CMC cataloging and metadata experts, cover a different challenging or interesting cataloging special topic each month, such as examining accessibility in cataloging and how to use some of the less-common MARC fields. A 40-minute Q&A session follows each presentation, allowing participants to seek clarification or ask about additional cataloging topics.
Online with the CMC webinars are free to all library workers in Illinois thanks to a grant awarded by the Illinois State Library, a Department of the Office of the Secretary of State, using funds provided by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA).
Register for these classes via the Library Directory & Learning Calendar (L2) website.Please note: This year, our Online with the CMC webinars are moving to the second Tuesday of each month.
