Cataloging and Metadata Services

    Cataloging and Metadata Services is one of three technical services divisions within the Resource Acquisitions and Description/Information Technology Services department of the University of Washington Libraries.  The division catalogs monographs, serials and integrating resources for all three University campuses, as well as Cascadia Community College, in all formats, languages and subjects.  It also provides subject analysis and authority work for digital collections, and plays a leading role in setting cataloging policy and in developing metadata standards and applications within the Libraries.

    (Aside from cataloging done in Cataloging and Metadata Services, some cataloging is decentralized within the Libraries.  The cataloging of CJK materials is done in the East Asia Library.  In addition, the Government Publications Division receives cataloging records from Marcive for its U.S. depository collection.   Finally, the Gallagher Law Library on the Seattle campus is a separate administrative unit and is responsible for its own cataloging.)
