    • Why she chose cataloging?  Really enjoys cataloging  finding the subjects, call numbers, and making sure the database has the correct information  Considers herself to be very detail- oriented, as far as the OPAC and library work is concerned  Catalogs her books at home
    • Daily Activities  3-4 projects going at a time to keep from tiring of one thing  New materials are cataloged first, then gift books and materials  Makes time for rush projects, like the deletion of much of the Index Table Reference books  Serves on various library and university committees (LibAdmin, Graduation, etc .), attends conferences, webinars, & workshops
    • Hardware/Software Used  Ex Libris Voyager system  Dell computer with Microsoft Office 2003/Internet Explorer  Label Printer  Shelflist cards become useful when making sure OPAC is accurate
    • Relationship With the Rest of the Library  Daily interaction with other departments is minimal  Works periodically with the Circulation, Collection Development and Government Documents departments on processing books for the collection  Discarding books  Stamping, stripping, gift plating
    • Advise for VSU's MLIS Students  Take a cataloging class  Learn RDA and AACR2  Even if RDA becomes the standard, most catalogs will still have AACR2 cataloging in them  Easy to edit old cataloging into AACR2 as she hits it when cataloging something else or when doing database cleanup
