Ten Essential Qualities for Success: A New Cataloging

1. Competence. There is nothing more important in cataloging than professional knowledge; this includes theoretical background as well as technical skills for cataloging.
2. Accuracy. In the Internet Age, searching the library catalog is essential. Accurate inputting of item descriptions and access points in the record that can accurately represent an item is necessary for effective retrieval by catalog users.
3. Efficiency. No library has an unlimited budget. Most libraries are nonprofit organizations and are responsible for spending money effectively and efficiently instead of focusing on generating revenues.
4. Consistency. Consistency is a key factor in organizing the library collection. The cataloging rules and standards should be applied consistently to provide a consistent level of cataloging quality.
5. Adaptability. The library world is changing more rapidly than ever, especially in terms of technology and workflow. Libraries often will implement a new ILS or upgrade it.
6. Judgment. In assigning subject headings and classification numbers, applying cataloging rules, and inputting information into the ILS using MARC format, many issues arise causing uncertainty and ambiguity.
7. Problem Solving. In implementing cataloging rules and standards, a cataloging librarian faces many issues with practicality or causing inconvenience to patrons.
8. Commitment. Supervisors want a cataloging librarian who seeks a challenge and tries to exceed expectations. He or she should be willing to find answers to a question about cataloging or to find a solution to a problem.
9. Research Ability. The growth and development of the library profession depends on extensive research. Research is an important tool for advancing knowledge.
10. Self-Discipline. The honor system is the best system. Self-control is the best control. Self-monitoring one’s own work ethics and habits and inspecting one’s own work is the best quality control.
