Recreating Cataloging Culture: Backlog Reduction as Empowerment

When new library initiatives were paired with space limitations, staff and librarians in the Cataloging and Metadata Center at UCLA became concerned about their growing backlogs, especially those in non-Roman scripts. Sharon Benamou was appointed chair of a group charged to develop new workflows and methods to eliminate these backlogs. The speaker discusses the specific methods chosen for different historic backlogs held in the department, including Southeast Asian, the general backlog and our newest project, the Cummings Collection of Hebraica and Judaica.

Presented by Sharon Benamou at the 2013 AJL Conference in Houston, TX.
