The first part of the class is to get me acquainted with the history of cataloging. The one name/term in cataloging/libraries I was somewhat familiar with was the Dewey Decimal System. Although I was familiar with it, I did not realize that he was not the first to create a system of cataloging. I was surprised to learn that even back in the days of egypt they were cataloging!
Another term I have come across and learned to add to my memory and vocabulary is the Library of Congress. This is such a HUGE part of cataloging. Almost everything I read seems to be somehow related to it, so I decided I wanted to visit it, but instead just looked up a video and found this.
That's all for now!
