Presented at the Indiana Library Federation Annual Conference, 17 November 2015.
From card catalogs to networked "beehive" terminals to desktop cataloging clients, catalogers have proven their flexibility and resilience through decades of technological change. With technological change, came new tools, new cataloging standards, and new workflows. Although job and department titles may be changing, certain core competencies have remained constant for catalogers (or, as some prefer, metadata specialists!). This presentation will provide a historical overview of the strengths and skills that catalogers possess and offer some ideas about how those skills may be applied in the future.
