Warning message

The launch of the new ALA Connect, scheduled for April 25, 2018, has been delayed due to technical issues. During final testing some critical issues related to navigation, tagging, and the structure of parent-child relationships were discovered.

The vendor is working to resolve these issues. We apologize for the delay and thank you for your patience.

While we're waiting to get started, please check out the resources and training on the support site. We'll keep you updated, in particular, we will communicate when we have a firm launch date.

If you have questions, please feel free to contact Pam Akins, Community Engagement Specialist, at alaconnectmigration@ala.org.

In this year's meeting, the CaMMS Cataloging and Classification Research IG provides a variety of presentations and discussions of research about the current organization and access to information and how it can be transitioned to the new environments. Social tagging, MARC XML, and RDA training issues are some of the topics that will be featured in this meeting.

Wendy West, Head of Database Maintenance, Processing and Bindery Department, University at Albany, State University of New York, will talk about her research on social tagging of graphic novels at ARL libraries and its implications for content discoverability; Peter H. Lisius, Music and Media Catalog Librarian, Kent State University, will present his research findings on training for catalogers under AACR2 and RDA standards; and Violeta Ilik, Metadata Cataloging Librarian, Texas A&M University Libraries, will describe the projects to create crosswalks between MARCXML and Dublin Core for specific collections at Texas A&M by using Extensible Stylesheet Language Transformations (XSLT).
