Empower Cataloging Staff with New Technology.
Jian, Ming
Advances in computers and information technology have created huge potentials for cataloging staff to increase efficiency and accuracy, reorganize the work force, change the workflow, streamline costs, and provide better services to patrons. Based on the practices at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL), this paper discusses what a librarian can do to take the initiative and take advantage of new information technology in a cataloging environment. Now more than ever, cataloging depends on information technology such as integrated local networks, integrated information retrieval systems, and bibliographic utilities. Empowering cataloging staff with new technology also becomes critical to efficiently providing access to a wide range of information sources. The paper also discusses forced integration of new information technology to be able to utilize new cataloging utilities, promoting work-related learning by staff, migrating to a Windows environment, and reaping the benefits of the Internet. In the information age, empowering library staff with new information technology has become one of the key issues for the success of a library. (Author/SWC)
