The great challenge of this digital age we find ourselves in will be to ensure that what we do - the collection, preservation and management of information is done in a consistent manner which ensures it is accessible in the future. Cataloguing remains one of the best tools we have to guarantee that information, irrespective of its format or content, can be accessed. This 6 week course will cover all the bases.
