RBMS Regional Workshop: Latin for Rare Materials Catalogers

RBMS Regional Workshop: Latin for Rare Materials Catalogers
Friday, October 22, 2010, 9:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Indiana University Bloomington
Herman B Wells Library, Room E174
1320 E. 10th Street
Bloomington, Indiana, 47405

This workshop is intended for rare materials catalogers with little or no familiarity with Latin. The workshop will provide tools for navigating the title page, identifying the key verbs and inflected forms of nouns for persons, places, and things, in order to accurately record title and remainder of title information, author(s) and other names, editions, publication information, and privilege statements (i.e. DCRM(B)/AACR2 descriptive areas 1, 2, and 4), and any related notes. Among the issues addressed will be identifying and expanding contracted forms, Latin terminology used for illustrations and publishing, and other issues unique to Latin materials.

Jennifer Nelson, School of Law, University of California at Berkeley.
Jennifer MacDonald, University of Delaware Library

Deadline is October 1, 2010. Limited to 30 participants.
