Job Posting - Looseleaf Filing clerk P/T

Fasken Martineau is looking for a part time filing clerk in the library. Duties will include looseleaf filing, shelving of library materials and other clerical tasks.

Question re CLE Webinars and Course Material

Question for the cataloguers out there - how are you treating the CLE Course Materials and Webinar Archives?

We have been cataloguing to the individual paper level until now - this month and last month I noticed that there were often only 1 or 2 papers included in a course, whereas there are multiple sessions linked in the Webinar Archives (see the Expert Evidence - 2015 for an example: 1 paper, 7 webinars).  

As the webinars are very well indexed, I see a value in cataloguing to the individual webinar level as well. Is anyone else doing this?

Any thoughts, suggestions, and opinions are welcome. And thank you!

Marnie
