Gippsland Workshop 1: COMPUTER CATALOGUING FOR ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS
February 15 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm$30 – $45
This workshop is the first in a series of six workshops on digitisation and cataloguing to be held at Federation University’s Gippsland Campus in Churchill. If you wish to purchase a discounted ticket to all six workshops click here.
This is a workshop for those who are new to computers, and small organisations who do not have the resources to use cataloguing software. Using only Excel, we will demonstrate how to create a simple catalogue that still complies with international standards. It will cover some cataloguing terminology, simple keyboard shortcuts for efficiency, and how to back-up your Excel files. We will also learn how to use and create a thesaurus/controlled vocabulary. By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to create a catalogue in Excel that can be exported to a cataloguing software program in the future.
The series of 6 linked workshops (three Saturday morning & afternoons over three months) cover aspects of cataloguing and digitisation. This series of workshops is progressive, starting with basic concepts and building in complexity.
Participants need to bring their own lap-top.
All workshops are limited to 20 participants and will be led by Sophie Shilling, our digital expert. They are all to be held at the library at Federation University’s Gippsland Campus in Churchill.
Tea and coffee are available throughout the workshop however participants staying for both workshops will need to bring their lunch.
