Greetings Colleagues,

CRCC recently sent out a call for future Update forum discussion topics.  The below ideas were submitted:

  • Expressing Seriality in Non-MARC metadata schema
  • RDA testing for continuing resources
  • KBART update
  • Who owns it now? serials cancellations, metadata maintenance, and the effect on access services
  • CRCC in a shrinking world: How are other libraries coping with the effects of the recession on our cont resources cataloging staff & operations?
  • Preservation metadata for serials: update on RLG partners' initiative

 

We are always looking for suggestions about speakers, panels, and topics we might present at future Monday Forums at the ALA MidWinter and Annual Conferences, or host as discussions on ALA Connect, or via other media such as the ALCTS e-forums.

Volunteers to address the topics of the hour are most genuinely sought!

Let us know what's on your mind!

Please contact any member of the Committee with suggestions.

for the Committee,

Jennifer Young

We will be conducting the meeting via the ALA Connect Chat as well as using FreeConferenceCall for the voice.

  • To join the conference call, you need to dial the number I emailed you as well as the Participant Access Code. (Given I have made this post pubic I am not including the numbers here.)
  • To join the chat, login to ALA Connect. Under “My ALA Groups” (one of the three menu items across the top of the page) select  “ACRL EBSS Instruction for Educators Committee (Educational and Behavioral Sciences Section).” Once there click the “Chats” link on the right side of the page under the committee name. You will see the chat name “Midwinter 2010 Virtual Mtg Chat - 12/10/09” - select the link and you will be in the chat.

At this point two of our members will not be able to join in the meeting and we have one individual not on the committee who will participate.
