Introduction: In 2022-2023, the PCC Sinopia Cataloging Affinity Group will facilitate a program to help onboard PCC catalogers to Sinopia. The program will be called the PCC Sinopia Mentorship Program, although since we are all new to Sinopia, it may function more as a "buddy program." Overall, the idea is to bring together small groups of PCC catalogers interested in working in Sinopia, and thereby learning more about cataloging in a linked data, BIBFRAME-oriented environment. Within these groups, peers can review each other's work, discuss problems that they are experiencing, and explore more specialized topics in Sinopia cataloging.
Interested in participating as a mentor or mentee? Please fill out this form.
Duration: 1 year, with the possibility to carry on after the completion of a year
- All participants should try to work on at least one resource description in Sinopia per month
Monthly touch-base: could be at a working hour, or separate depending on scheduling needs of the peer group
Bi-monthly working hours will have a mentorship focus, with breakout rooms
How should mentor/mentee groups report issues they have?
Bring these issues to the working hour as questions to share with the broader group
if that is not possible, fee free to do one of the following:
Tracking: we have created a spreadsheet to help participants track their work. This can serve a useful place to:
- Share the URIs of Sinopia resources for review by your peers
- Keep track of questions that you have related to cataloging specific resources in Sinopia
- Provide review notes to your peer group
