Workshop on “Library of Congress Classification”

During the last week of November, three of the Library staff attended a workshop on “Library of Congress Classification system” in Birzeit University Main Library.  Mrs. Diana Sayej-Nasser, Library Director, started the first session by giving a brief summary about cataloging system.  The trainers also introduced us to new tools which are the cataloger’s desktop and RDA toolkit. Moreover, they have introduced us to the library of congress classification web and the subject headings and tables, useful for tasks of classification and cataloguing. Each topic was reinforced by training sessions.  The Vice President of Academic Affairs, Dr. Henry Giacaman attended the ceremony and gave out certificates of attendance to 17 participants who were from different university libraries in the West Bank.
