"On the Record", the report of the Library of Congress Working Group on the Future of Bibliographic Control, stresses the need for an up-to-date educational preparation of catalogers, metadata specialists, indexers, and other librarians and information professionals, so that the educational system will continue to produce professional librarians whose skill sets match the needs of the marketplace that they will be entering.

To address this issue ALCTS and ALISE are convening a meeting for librarians involved in bibliographic control (writ large) and educators. This hour and a half-long forum will feature three speakers, providing varying perspectives on the current state of cataloging and metadata education and what cataloging and metadata practitioners need to know in the workplace. Time will be provided for the speakers to respond to each other’s presentations, and to questions and comments from the audience.

The session will be moderated by Dr. Arlene G. Taylor, Professor Emerita of the University of Pittsburgh School of Information Sciences, and will feature the following panelists:

Shilpa Rele, Digital Program Librarian at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, CA, and 2009 MLIS Graduate from the University of California, Los Angeles. As a recent LIS graduate, Shilpa will discuss coursework and internships that she took during her MLIS program, and how well they prepared her for her current position.

Beth Picknally Camden, Patricia and Bernard Goldstein Director of Information Processing, University of Pennsylvania.
As a library administrator, responsible for managing catalogers and metadata specialists, Beth will discuss how well the desired skill sets for catalogers and cataloging managers are being developed in current LIS graduates; and how well libraries are meeting the needs for continuing education and professional development.

Dr. June Abbas, Associate Professor, University of Oklahoma Department of Library and Information Studies.
As an LIS faculty member, June will discuss the current state of LIS cataloging education from a faculty perspective and initiate an open discussion with the audience.

Discussion Keeping communication open

by Kathryn La Barre on Thu, Mar 3, 2011 at 01:46 pm

Greetings,

I've sent a similar message to June Abbas, chair of the RDA Update programming TF, Sylvia Hall-Ellis chair of the Competencies and Education for a Career in Cataloging Interest Group, to Marjorie Bloss, Gertrude Koh, Erin Stalberg, and Bobby Bothmann (CCS EC).

Greetings,

I've sent a similar message to June Abbas, chair of the RDA Update programming TF, Sylvia Hall-Ellis chair of the Competencies and Education for a Career in Cataloging Interest Group, to Marjorie Bloss, Gertrude Koh, Erin Stalberg, and Bobby Bothmann (CCS EC).

Out of curiosity, I followed a link on our website:
http://www.ala.org/ala/mgrps/divs/alcts/mgrps/taskforces/ats-cmletf.cfm

To a notice about a meeting I missed because I did not know about it.

_______________________

The Competencies and Education for a Career in Cataloging Interest Group
meeting in San Diego will be held on Friday, January 7, 2011, in the San
Diego Convention Center, Room 23B, 4 p.m. to 5:15 p.m.

Our plan is to develop a formal managed discussion at the ALA Annual in New Orleans next June. The developing ALA competencies for librarianship
(http://www.ala.org/ala/educationcareers/careers/corecomp/corecompetences...)
and emerging requirements related to RDA give us a lot to consider.

_______________________

June Abbas, Marjorie Bloss and I reserved a room at ALA annual in order to ensure that a meeting of educators would happen at ALA annual 2011. I've joined the ALA Connect area for this IG, and I encourage you to be involved if you are interested as well.

We should all be keeping in touch with one another. This is one of the
aspects of ALA that frustrates me immensely! So big, that it seems like many
parallel worlds exist, and much effort is expended on work that could be
shared across groups with similar interests.
