Feedback Forum - Best Practices for Cataloging Comics and Graphic Novels
The GNCRT's Metadata and Cataloging Committee will present our committee's draft document, "Best Practices for Cataloging Comics and Graphic Novels Using RDA and MARC21." The presentation is meant to be interactive, and will include a brief review of the document with ample time for questions and feedback from audience members, so that we can look at areas that might need revision or additions to best serve the comics cataloging community.
