Cataloging Norms Interest Group

Saturday, June 28, 2014
10:30 am to 11:30 am, US/Pacific

Cataloging Norms Interest Group session has two presentations lined up to discuss the immediate future of cataloging and metadata, the training and continuing education needed for new standards, and the creative workflows and collaborations being created for the ever-changing metadata environment.

Brad Cole, Associate Dean for Special Collections and Archives, Liz Woolcott, Metadata Librarian, and Clint Pumphrey, Manuscript Curator, from Utah State University will share their experiences with new metadata workflows in their presentation titled "Responsive workflow design: creating collaborative cross-departmental teams for cataloging, digitization, and archives". They will report on the USU Merrill-Cazier Library's pilot project, its initial success and trails, procedures, training, and the future plans for further integrating cross-departmental workflows.

Dr. Jung-ran Park, Associate Professor, College of Computing and Technology at Drexel University, and Dr. Yuji Tosaka, Cataloging/Metadata Librarian, The College of New Jersey Library will present a talk titled "RDA training, continuing education, and implementation" that reviews what they learned from a 2012 national RDA survey and the 2014 follow-up interviews specifically about RDA training and implementation, along with discussing their IMLS funded project beginning in June about an information professional workforce in the 21st century which includes developing an open access collaborative digital repository to share professional development resources.
