Speakers will address cataloging for discovery of three-dimensional objects including circulating puppets, board games, a human bone study collection, plus historical and technological artifacts usually placed in Special Collections. Catalogers will explain how details are added to bibliographic records to enhance discovery by fit of object to patron (number of players, playing time, suggested age, for example for games), whether intended for circulating or preservation objects. The session is useful for librarians or support staff involved in cataloging and collection development decisions for three –dimensional objects, or those with curiosity about accepting realia for collections or enhancing its discovery by library patrons.
