Catalog Form and Function Interest Group

Saturday, January 31, 2015
3:00 pm to 4:00 pm, US/Central

The meeting will feature two presentations followed by a group discussion.

Andrew Clark, Discovery and Metadata Librarian at Simmons College Library, will discuss his library’s approach to presenting their discovery system as one in a set of tools working along several others such as the catalog and journal A-Z list. He will discuss the decision process used to determine which resources are represented in which discovery tool with the aim of avoiding redundancy, making instruction easier, and optimizing search results for patrons.

Rachel Hooper, Business and Reference Librarian, and Ruth Elder, Cataloging Librarian, at Troy University will discuss their library’s current process of transitioning from Serials Solutions Summon to WorldCat Discovery. The presentation will be a practical, detailed talk from the perspective of a reference librarian and a cataloger. They will discuss why they chose to change systems, the steps involved in switching, and their end term goals.
