Cataloguers are assigned the responsibility of critically analyzing and creating bibliographic records for Special Collections housed in The West Indies & Special Collection Section (WI&SC).  Specific subject terms must be assigned to the item in hand using authority control vocabulary as well as generic terms that will be used by the users to assist them in locating these special materials in the integrated library system.
