Summary
Recommend to local senates to specify that all library book cataloging be done by a librarian or under the direct supervision of a library faculty member.
Status Report

Found not feasible. Counseling and Library Faculty Issues Committee make recommendations for guidelines for cataloging supervision by librarians.

Whereas Title 5 specifies librarians are trained and certificated faculty in library science, and

Whereas consistent quality cataloging of library books is crucial for faculty and student research, and

Whereas the American Library Association clearly defines that librarians are responsible for properly cataloging books,

Resolved that the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges recommend to local senates to specify that all library book cataloging be done by a librarian or under the direct supervision of a library faculty member.
