Original cataloging must be done with great care and attention to detail. The template guides below are designed to help catalogers navigate MARC fields for various types of materials and contain examples of well-done MARC records for reference.

To begin, log into Evergreen and select Cataloging –> Create New MARC Record. Use the dropdown menu to select a template according to the type of material you’re cataloging. Then use the guides below to fill in the MARC fields.
