Welcome to the UCLA Cataloging & Metadata Center
The UCLA Library Cataloging and Metadata Center is the main cataloging center in the UCLA Library system. It is primarily responsible for providing access to more than 90,000 titles annually including locally-digitized and curated materials, in various formats and languages, using various metadata schemas. In addition to providing access to tangible materials, this includes creating metadata in support of UCLA’s Digital Library Program. Members of the Center advise and consult with others on metadata issues.
The Center serves the cataloging needs of the Arts, Biomedical, College, Management, Music, Science & Engineering, and Young Research Libraries, as well as of eight small collections on campus.
The Center’s 12 FTE librarians and 22.5 FTE staff are organized into 7 teams: Data Integrity, Discovery, ERM & Continuing Resources, International, Knowledge Management, Metadata, and Subject Specialists. The Center is a member of the Program for Cooperative Cataloging and contributes to BIBCO, CONSER, NACO, and SACO.
