Cataloging for Makerspaces

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Although many school libraries include makerspaces, their catalogs do not always provide information about makerspace resources. Cataloging these resources can benefit school library users and staff in several ways. This article argues that how cataloging increases the visibility of the makerspace collection not only by making the items accessible for catalog users, but also facilitating browsing by collocating similar resources.
