Staff Training during System Upgrading

During the Aleph500 system upgrading, acquisitions and cataloging librarians are unable to do their work in the National Library of China from March 24 to March 30. The Chinese Acquisitions & Cataloging Department arranged a series of training courses on Classified Chinese Thesaurus, authority control, bibliographic description and analysis of problems in bibliographic records. About 100 staff members attended every training course.

The objective of the training courses is to raise the quality awareness of catalogers and to improve the quality control of bibliographic records in the library.
