The Northern Territory Library Wiki is a web-based knowledge management project for the Northern Territory Library staff and Northern Territory Library stakeholders. The aim of the NTLWiki is to facilitate open communication through internal and external collaboration. The wiki contains articles about the transparent business of the Northern Territory Library to communicate clearly the practises of the institution.
The NTLWiki is written collaboratively by the staff of the Northern Territory Library and stakeholders with whom the Northern Territory Library has a relationship that would be benefit by further communication. This includes stakeholders who are collaborating in joint projects with Northern Territory Library. Stakeholders have access to edit, comment, create and view in relevant articles. All contributions to the NTLWiki are done by authenticated users, and stakeholders are required to request access.
The NTLWiki covers a broad range of the business practises of the Northern Territory Library. This includes, a calendar for shared devices, a cataloguing manual and working documents on projects that are being run by the Northern Territory Library. Unlike a static website, the NTLWiki is continually created and updated, and allows for the documentation of current and historic practices. This wiki has several RSS feed options if you want to keep track of changes or follow a topic.
This manual is designed to show what we do with each different item type that we handle. This manual is not designed to teach how to catalogue.
There are some specifically Australian exceptions to subject headings which have been mandated by Australian libraries and are maintained by the National Library of Australia. The National Library of Australia provides ABN Cataloguing Manual to assist with Cataloguing.
The examples given in this manual are intended to be a guide only and will not answer every question you may have about a particular item. If ever you have any doubts about an item please contact Cataloguing.
