Public Hearing for Descriptive Cataloging of Rare Materials (Cartographic) or DCRM(C)
6:00 pm to 8:00 pm, US/Central
The editorial team for Descriptive Cataloging of Rare Materials (Cartographic), or DCRM(C), will be holding a public hearing on the draft document at the ALA Annual Conference in Chicago on Saturday, June 29, 2013, from 6:00-8:00 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency Chicago Hotel, Skyway 260. We welcome comments in person at the public hearing. Expertise in cartographic materials cataloging is NOT a requirement for readers. The editors are specifically looking for feedback on sections that may be confusing or unclear to those with no (or limited) experience cataloging cartographic materials. They are also looking for any problems with the text, including, but not limited to, typos, incorrect references, errors, etc.
The draft text is available for viewing and downloading at http://www.rbms.info/committees/bibliographic_standards/dcrm/dcrmc/dcrmc.html
We also welcome comments in writing. Please send written comments by July 31 to the following email address:
