About Cataloging

The Cataloging Department builds and maintains a bibliographic database in support of the diverse academic programs at the University of Memphis. The department catalogs, classifies, and processes content in a variety of formats to enable researchers to discover and access materials in all formats in the library's collections. Members of the department participate in the Library of Congress' NACO program to create name authority records for the national database. The library also hosts the catalogs of Jackson State Community College, LeMoyne-Owen College, and the University of Memphis Law School Library. The cataloging Department documentation is maintained in a University of Memphis wiki.
