The Serial Cohort: A confederacy of catalogers

In 2018, at a time when our department was shrinking through attrition, the decision was made to further leverage the particular skill sets of a select group of monographic catalogers by training them to also undertake the complex copy cataloging of serials.

This presentation concerns the assumptions underlying how this decision was originally made, the initial plan for how this would be accomplished by CONSER Bridge Training, the eventual formation of the Serials Cohort with a view to creating an iterative process I would design and manage, and the problems, obstacles and time constraints faced and addressed along the way.
