dc.description.abstract The Bibliographic Standards Committee produces rules for descriptive cataloging of rare materials (DCRM). Many instructions and accompanying examples focus on early print and manuscript materials, but what do we do when faced with today’s rare materials? What are user needs and best practices for cataloging transient art materials, self-published music, artists’ books, zines, Web archives, digital humanities projects, oral histories, and research datasets – and how might these differ from materials traditionally collected by rare book, manuscript, and special collections libraries? This lightning-round seminar will provide a bootcamp on description and access to today’s rare materials. Audience members will understand and be able to articulate challenges in providing access to today’s rare materials, and will gain a toolkit of solutions for cataloging and discovery.
