Cataloging Norms Interest Group
10:30 am to 11:30 am, US/Pacific
The Cataloging Norms Interest Group program will focus on some of the challenges in today’s changing cataloging environments. Maura Valentino will discuss the different ways metadata is used apart from description. It is hoped that understanding the goals behind the creation of metadata will help catalogers understand how cataloging and their workflows are changing, but the skill set needed to accomplish these changes are not. Harold Thiele’s presentation will trace the changes in cataloging practices from ancient Mesopotamia to the present including RDA with the focus on the development and changes in the main entry concept.
