LITA Next Generation Catalog Interest Group Annual Report, 2010-2011

The Next Generation Catalog Interest Group coordinated presentations at ALA Annual 2010 and Midwinter 2011. At Annual, a distinguished panel of Eric Lease Morgan, Tim Spalding, and John Blyberg shared their visions of enrichments to our library catalogs to serve our next-generation researcher. At Midwinter, a large crowd heard a presentation by Eric Lindahl, Executive Director of the eXtensible Catalog, about the data flexibility of the platform.

Successful elections were concluded for 2010-2011 and 2011-2012 Vice-chairs/Chairs-elect, and the IG welcomed Michael Kim and Becka Rich, respectively. We conducted an online officer election using the poll feature of ALA Connect this spring.
