Institute for Peace and Justice Cataloging Project

This summer, the Technical Services Department of Copley Library will be taking on a new cataloging project involving the Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace and Justice’s (IPJ) mini-library. The project is being headed by Laura Turner, the Head of Technical Services, and Julia Hess, the Collection Services and Metadata Librarian but the other staff members and student workers of the department will be involved as well. The main purpose of the project is to create online access to the records of the materials for their faculty and students. The collection consists of approximately 400 books and small sets of various journals and audiovisual materials and they are located in the IPJ Conference Room. The materials were obtained through donations, purchases or received through subscriptions. The subjects covered in the collection are mostly social justice, peace studies, conflict resolution, theology, and communication theory. The majority of the collection is expected to be cataloged by the end of September 2014 and once it is completely finished, it will be shelved in call number order. 20140730_100723
