Abstract:The authors describe how an existing course in cataloguing for postgraduate students of librarianship at the University of Sheffield's Department of Information Studies was modified to include practical work on cataloguing electronic resources. The students were instructed to search the Internet for resources associated with some topic, and to design a cataloguing and classifying system for these resources. Each system was implemented as a collection of World-Wide Web (WWW) pages, which have been installed on the Department's WWW site for global viewing.
