This page includes documentation used by CatS and by copy catalogers, and is created and maintained by the Monographic Cataloging Documentation Group (Holly Chang, Miree Ku, Cathy Leonardi, Lesley Looper, Nanako Thomas and Amy Turner (chair)). Currently, this page includes the most used documents, with more specialized documentation in section sites on Sharepoint (for example, the CatS and Receipts Management sites). After migration to the new web platform, we may attempt to move all cataloging documentaion (except for secure information such as passwords) to the web, to allow for easier searching.
For all online documentation, please do no rely on printed copies. Revision is continual, and only major changes are announced.
