Abstract
  • Oregon State University has trained paraprofessionals to assign subject headings to theses and dissertations. This article describes the training program for the paraprofessionals and the ongoing support provided by weekly meetings to discuss works that are difficult to analyze. The transition from copy cataloging to subject analysis is a major one for many paraprofessionals. The article identifies common errors made by new subject analyzers and how they can be overcome. These meetings provide a venue for further training on subject analysis, practice in subject heading assignment and building cooperation amongst staff. They also allow the cataloging supervisor to manage his/her own time better.
