The LOA Librarian announced the completion of the Docent Library Cataloging Project at the MIAC/LOA staff meeting held April 7th, 2015.
The Laboratory of Anthropology Librarian (LOA Librarian) has completed cataloging 396 books held in the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture Docent Library as a collection in the Laboratory of Anthropology Library Koha catalog.
The MIAC Docent Library is the only docent library collection in the New Mexico Department of Cultural Affairs Museum of New Mexico group of libraries that has their library cataloged by the respective Museum librarian.
Docent Library Webpage
The LOA Librarian has created a Museum of Indian Arts and Culture Docent Library webpage. This webpage is located under the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture Research and Collections link, under the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture/Laboratory of Anthropology Library.
This webpage provides contact information for Doug Fine, the Docent in charge of maintaining the Docent Library collections, as well as for the LOA Librarian.
The webpage also provides explicit step-by-step instructions on how Docents can access the Laboratory of Anthropology Library Koha catalog and once that is done, limit their searches in the catalog to just the Docent Library holdings.
Laboratory of Anthropology Library Koha Catalog Training
Now that the Docent Library collection cataloging has been completed, the MIAC-LOA Librarian will offer orientation and training to the Docents on how to use the Koha ILS.
Andy Albertson in MIAC Education Docent Coordinator asked Allison Colborne to provide the LOA Library Koha ILS training at the next Docent meeting.
