A question was asked about who in the library was responsible for several different cataloging related tasks (professionals, para-professionals, or hourly staff) and whether those tasks were completed inside or outside of the traditional cataloging unit. This post and several others include data about specific tasks, separated by the type of academic institution.

The majority of original cataloging is completed by professional librarians while copy cataloging is completed more heavily by para-professionals.
