Should catalogers learn to be programmers?

May - 30 - 2007

There is an interesting discussion going on at Cataloging Futures. The question is how do we upgrade our Cataloger’s skill sets? How do we prepare them for cataloging of digital collections?

Most catalogers have the important skill set already: experience with structured data and standards, good analytical skills, the ever necessary discipline of being attentive to details, etc. But these skills have to be upgraded. We definitely can’t rest on our laurels.

The discussion in the comments has turned to teaching catalogers some programming – what do you think? Weigh in at Cataloging Futures.
