Title One day Workshop on Co-operative Cataloging and Data Conversion

ADINET in collaboration with INFLIBNET Centre, Gandhinagar and Center for Environmental Planning & Technology is organizing a One day Workshop on Cooperative Cataloguing and Data Conversion on Saturday 26th July, 2014 at the Center for Environmental Planning & Technology (CEPT), Ahmedabad. The major technical work done in libraries is classification, cataloging, indexing and data entry of books. This is a time consuming process which requires knowledge of cataloging and also knowledge of the subject covered in the book. Again the catalog work done may not be error free and in a standardized format. 

Most college libraries are managed by only one technical staff. Hence the need and importance of co-operative cataloging. Providing support for technical work to College Library Professionals will enable them to devote more time for reader's services. 

Both Co-operative Cataloging and Retrospective Conversion will now be more feasible since most college libraries have installed Soul Software.

The workshop will cover the work done for data conversion of the library resources. It has been observed that some college libraries, school libraries and government

district libraries or public libraries have not yet made use of computers for their library work and are still using traditional library methods. Some of the libraries have introduced automation but catalog details of their entire book collection are not in machine readable form.
