An introductory letter, a list of general instructions on how to proceed with a correspondence course, a syllabus with examples of title pages and catalog cards, and an examination request form are presented for a correspondence course in classification and cataloging offered by the University of New Mexico's Division of Continuing Education and Community Services. The course is a general introduction to the cataloging and classification of books and other media, and it familiarizes students with the organization and administration of cataloging operations in libraries of various types and sizes. The texts used are Donald Foster's Managing the Catalog Department and the latest edition of the Anglo-American Cataloging Rules. Use of the Sears List of Subject Headings and the Dewey Decimal Classification is also included. The Syllabus contains 30 lessons. Questions and exercises assigned in the lessons are designed to examine the student's grasp of specific readings covered in the text, and to give the student practice in using cataloging tools and doing descriptive cataloging and subject classification.
