Discussion Summary of Current Activities

by Peter Collins on Fri, Oct 19, 2012 at 04:43 pm

The Committee will continue to review best practices for the display or treatment of new types of collections in our library catalogs such as eBooks and purchase on demand books. The Committee will not meet at Midwinter but a future conference call will be scheduled to discuss findings and to begin planning for the discussion forum for the annual meeting.

Discussion 2012/13 Goals

by Peter Collins on Fri, Aug 17, 2012 at 01:06 pm

Goals for 2012/13

1. Focus on an issue affecting reference services and our patron communities today: the display or treatment of new types of collections in our catalogs such as eBooks and purchase on demand books, etc. – especially best practices within the confines of the library catalog to help users understand how to utilize these resources.

2. Organize a discussion forum at the ALA Annual Meeting 2013 with a small panel of speakers to address above issue.

---------------------------------

Update:  April 18, 2012

The Catalog Use Committee has been actively preparing for our Round Table Discussion which we will be hosting at the Annual conference.  The group met on a conference call on April 10 to wrap up some loose ends.  We are using Connect wiki spaces to finalize content for the conference and brainstorm our advertising venues.  Everything is coming together and looks like it will be a fun and informative session.

 

---------------------------------

Update:   October 17, 2011

The Catalog Use Committee will be having a virtual meeting later this month.  We are not planning to hold an onsight meeting at Mid-Winter, but we will have another virtual meeting around that time.  We will be using this time to decide on our agenda for Annual.  We have had success with Discussion Forums in the past, and I fully anticipate we will have information to at the Mid-Winter virtual meeting regarding our plans.

 

---------------------------------

July 25, 2011

The committee hosted a discussion forum at ALA Annual in New Orleans (Diving into the Deep End: Teaching the New Discovery Tools) on the experience of guiding library users in the adoption of web-scale discovery. Three panelists spoke about the experience in their libraries. There were 37 attendees, and the topic provoked lots of lively discussion. Based on the success of this forum, we will consider hosting another, perhaps at Midwinter in Dallas.

Goals:

The committee identified these goals for the next year at its meeting in New Orleans:

1) Keep the committee on the front line of presenting interesting ideas to ALA, by building on our previous successes hosting discussion forums.

2) Stimulate the involvement of all committee members in the activities of the committee.

Our Mission
To focus on the use of catalogs and related emerging technologies in reference services, including: monitoring significant continuities and changes; identifying and examining critical issues; and providing a forum for discussion of innovation.

Five things you should know about the Catalog Use Committee
Consistent with its charge, the Catalog Use Committee:

  • Examines issues related to discovery and access in the library catalog (broadly defined).
  • Explores emerging technologies within the context of reference services, tracking those trends most likely to be adapted by libraries and be of benefit to users, such as mobile access.
  • Is concerned with maintaining the integrity of library catalogs for users in light of rapid changes in technology, promoting ease of use during transition, and assessing the gains and losses change brings.
  • Promotes the critical appraisal of library technology (what works, what doesn't), and the responsibility reference staff have in teaching the public how to use library systems.
  • Provides and supports opportunities to showcase innovations. The committee develops programs and discussions on these issues, and co-sponsors events developed by other ALA groups.
