Cataloging Resource Curation Project

I know, I know....Wikipedia is not to be trusted, but I think it is a great place to start and the reason why I put it at the top of my list.  I provides a one stop shop to view the DDS classification subdivisions as well as helpful resource links at the end.  I think Wikipedia gets a bad rap and should be everyone's first stop as they begin to research.

I love Glogster and thought this provided information in a unique format.  There are many resources I could use in my teaching to students more so than using it for professional cataloging.

In an effort to find any type of standardized breakdown of what is what on the right side of the decimal in the DDS, I found this list created by the Appleton (WI) Public Library.  It doesn't provide EVERY topic, but it gives an excellent start to anyone wanting an easy reference for the basics.

As I was working on the final exam, I found myself using this site as a starting point for research.  I consider the Library of Congress a definitive answer in standardized cataloging practices and believe their "answer" to any cataloging questions is always a great place to start and end.  Many of the the "sub-sites" appear below as a more direct route to where I may need to get.

The Association for Library Collections and Technical Services is a professional group I was not aware existed and believe if I were to become a full-time cataloguer I would invest in becoming a part of the group.  There are many "how to" guidelines included on the homepage to explore as well as links to appropriate print resources.
