ALCTS Catalog Management IG - ALA Mid-Winter 2013 Meeting Call for Proposals

The ALCTS CaMMS Catalog Management Interest Group (CMIG) invites proposals for presentations at ALA’s 2013 Midwinter Meeting in Seattle, Washington. The group will be meeting on Saturday, January 26th from 1:00 until 2:30.

CMIG’s charge is to discuss the various issues involved with cataloging, classification, and authority control after initial cataloging has been performed. Catalog management is defined as the continuous upgrading and updating of a catalog, regardless of its format, be it card, microform, book, or online. The group will provide a forum for exchanging information and discussing techniques, new developments, and problems in managing the bibliographic integrity of library catalogs.

Presentations should be 20 minutes in length. Past presentations have covered topics such as patron driven acquisition programs, merging catalogs, adding facets and genre headings to the catalog, and managing a batch OCLC reclamation project.

Please email your proposal to Jane Anne Carey (jacarey@ufl.edu). Proposals are due by Friday, November 9th.

For questions, please contact:
