Authority Control Interest Group, ALA Annual 2014 (Las Vegas)
The LITA/ALCTS Authority Control Interest Group (ACIG) Program was held at ALA Annual in Las Vegas on Sunday, June 29 from 1pm-3pm. About 100 folks were in attendance. The ACIG meeting had four presentations with four speakers, with the presentations lasting a little over two hours.
The presentations and descriptions are posted elsewhere in this Connect space:

A Q&A followed each of the presentations.
There was a one-hour open business meeting after the presentations from 3pm-4pm for board members and anyone else that wanted to attend. Scott Piepenburg (Head of Cataloging, Odum Library – Valdosta State University) was named as the new incoming vice-chair, and two new members-at-large were named. The Web Chair position was eliminated as those duties are taken care of by other folks in the use of ALA Connect for all our web work. Also discussed at the meeting were possible topics and speakers for the ALA Midwinter program in Chicago in 2015, the upcoming renewal of the group by LITA, reports from the chair on attending the LITA Chairs meeting and Open House, why the group is connected to both ALCTS + LITA, and possible projects that the group can contribute to outside of presenting programs at ALA conferences (e.g. contributing to Gary Strawn’s Phase 3 project).
