In this session I'll share a pragmatic approach to cataloging materials for school libraries. We'll discuss and explore the most important MARC fields to make your records searchable and useful to students and staff. I'll share possible sources for ready-made MARC records, sources and techniques for finding information on hard-to-catalog items such as world language materials, cheat sheets for formatting the most important fields, and methods for bulk-editing your titles and copies. Also for your consideration, a non-standard method to display series information more prominently in your catalog and make items sortable by series order. Bonus: if we have time or they are successful, I'll share results of my experiments with using AI/LLMs to generate MARC records.
