If you are not so familiar with MARC and cataloguing, I recommend the Understanding MARC booklets. Koha doesn't use MARC Holdings records (yet) but the booklet for the bibliographic format particularly is a great resource. There's one for authorities too. Links to the online booklets are on this page: https://www.loc.gov/marc/

And if you want to play about with the data outside Koha, search for the remarkable product MarcEdit.

Subject: Re: [Koha] Introduction

I wanted to follow up with a question.

Now I have an agenda item of getting a working Koha installation, and after that I will need to (start to) catalogue a relatively small library.

I have broad interests, but I don't really know LIS apart from an introduction to information architecture.

Could you recommend to me some introductory titles about LIS and librarianship?
