To take Cataloguing or not? Thoughts?
Hello fellow Tumblarians!
I’m in need of some advice, if some of you may be so kind!
Since I only have a few years to maximize my MLIS degree, I am trying my best to plan out my future courses. After just one semester, I have definitely not figured out what I want to focus on just yet. All I’ve been hearing from professors and working professionals is:
"Keep your options open."
"Don’t focus too narrowly on just one thing."
However, the Cataloguing class runs in two parts throughout my second year, covering both semesters. I’ve heard varied opinions about the value of taking Cataloguing classes, and am having a tough time deciding if I should.
My questions for you are: If you took Cataloguing, have you found it to be beneficial in your library career after your Masters degree?
If you didn’t take it, do you wish you did?
Thanks Tumblarians! Looking forward to hearing what you have to say :-)
