Bio: Alex Whelan is the Metadata Strategist at New York University Libraries where he oversees domain-specific cataloging operations for non-monograph and special formats. Alex's background is in time-based media metadata creation for audiovisual and digital re sources with an emphasis on DVD/Blu-Ray and 16mm film collections. Alex is a member of the Online Audiovisual Catalogers Association's (OLAC) Cataloging & Policy Committee and president of the New York Technical Services Librarians organization (NYTSL). He has also taught graduate courses in Metadata for Moving Images at NYU's Moving Image Archiving and Preservation program in the Martin Scorsese Department of Cinema Studies. 

Workshop overview:  This two-part workshop will offer a foundation for moving image cataloging to participants from all library / technical services backgrounds. Part I will draw on the recently-published OLAC Unified Best Practices Guide to provide an overview of videodisc, videotape, streaming video resources topics including official RDA concepts and terminology related to moving image materials. Part II will consist of examples from best practices including complex work/part relationships, multilingual resources, and additional hybrid formats (continuing resources, video games, nonmusical sound recordings). Participants are encouraged to bring their own questions / examples for group exercise. Any level of experience is welcome.

Learning Environment: This interactive workshop will be hosted on Zoom.
