The nature of cataloguing modules requires face-to-face interactions between lecturers and students for the explanation of concepts and the practical use of manuals and standards applied. Due to Covid-19 outbreak that led to lockdown in many countries and consequently to closure of the face to face universities, teaching and learning should be altered to continue with the university mandate. This paper investigated Cataloguing Education (CE) and suggest relevant approaches of CE outside the traditional classroom context. This research employed the qualitative approach grounded on documents/textual content analysis of literature and the experiences attained by the author. Findings revealed that cataloguing modules could be taught online. The study recommends the use of Open Educational Resources (OER), effective online teaching and virtual work integrated learning.
