Topic 1:  Provider Neutral Record for E-Monographs

The Program for Cooperative Cataloging (PCC) has developed guidelines for a provider neutral record for e-monographs.  The provider neutral record guidelines will be implemented on July 17, 2009.   Becky Culbertson, Shared Cataloging Program, California Digital Library, Metadata Service Department, University of California San Diego, who was one of the co-chairs of the Task Group that developed these guidelines, will speak to us about the provider neutral record.  You’ll want to hear about this, as there will be an impact on the records you use for copy cataloging on e-monographs.

Topic 2:  Vendor Cataloging Records

Do you use vendor supplied records for copy cataloging? Do you perform copy cataloging with vendor supplied records?  Have you ever wondered how a vendor’s cataloging operation works?  Deborah Silverman, Technical Services Manager NA, Coutts Information Services, will be joining us with a presentation entitled: “Look Before You Leap:  Integrating Vendor Copy Cataloging Into Your Library Catalog.”  Deborah has worked in a library copy cataloging area and now for a vendor, so she’s going to try to pull both perspectives together.

If you’re interested in copy cataloging, please join us at the Copy Cataloging Interest Group.  If you’re interested in serving as Vice Chair/Chair Elect of this group, we’re looking for you!  Nominate yourself or someone else by contacting Gene Dickerson or Tatiana Barr.   We hope to see you there.

Gene Dickerson, Chair   DickersonEH@state.gov

Please join ALCTS PARS, PLA and LLAMA BESS for this great program!

Managing Preservation without a Preservation Librarian

 

Sponsored by PARS and Co-sponsored by PLA and LLAMA SASS

 

12 July 2009

3:30pm – 5:30pm

 

McCormick Place West Room W-181

 

 

Many libraries manage preservation programs and activities without a full-time preservation administrator.  Managing preservation in small and mid-sized libraries of all types (public, academic, school, special, etc.) depends on the integration of preservation responsibilities in all units and the support of administration. 

 

This program will:

 

·        

Outline how to organize a preservation program without a full-time preservation administrator.

 

·        

Demonstrate the importance of administrative support, policies, and planning in  establishing and sustaining a preservation program.

 

·        

Establish the roles and responsibilities of individuals and units in the library and how to sustain preservation activity over the long-term.

 

 

 

Speakers:

 

·        

Roberta Pilette, Head, Preservation Department, Yale University

 

·        

Michele Stricker, Consultant, Library Development Bureau, New Jersey State Library

 

·        

Oliver Cutshaw, Librarian, The Chicago School, Southern California

 

 

 

 

Staff and librarians in small, mid-sized, and large institutions that do not have a professionally trained preservation librarian are invited and encouraged to participate in this program.

Discussion Ludlow Massacre site designated a National Historic Landmark.

by Kathleen McCook on Sun, Jun 28, 2009 at 09:38 pm

Ludlow becomes a National Historic Landmark.

 

Ludlow was the site of 14 months of strikes in 1913-14 by some 1,200 coal miners who were fed up with low wages, unsafe conditions and company towns that kept the miners deeply in debt. More than 100 people died in the strikes.

Ludlow becomes a National Historic Landmark.

 

Ludlow was the site of 14 months of strikes in 1913-14 by some 1,200 coal miners who were fed up with low wages, unsafe conditions and company towns that kept the miners deeply in debt. More than 100 people died in the strikes.

One particularly tragic confrontation occurred on April 20, 1914, when 20 people, including 11 children and two mothers, died when the Colorado National Guard stormed a tent encampment.

The United Mine Workers Association bought that site in 1917, then installed a granite monument to the strikers and the massacre victims.
