Online Distance Learning with Cataloging Mentors: The Mentor's Viewpoint

Harcourt, Kathryn; Neumeister, Susan

Cataloging experts from across the United States were asked to critique assignments from students enrolled in Professor Gertrude Koh's classes at the Graduate School of Library and Information Science at the Dominican University in River Forest, Illinois through the use of an Internet bulletin board (WebBoard™, O'Reilly & Associates, Inc.). This paper examines the mentors' perspective on teaching cataloging and their experience in teaching future colleagues via the WebBoard.

KEYWORDS: Mentoring, distance education, cataloging education, Internet resource cataloging
