ALCTS Public Libraries Technical Services Interest Group is co-sponsoring a pre-conference event with ALCTS, CaMMS, Continuing Education Committee.

 

Description:
How can we as catalogers and metadata specialists use our skills to increase our libraries’ presence on the web? Based on his Library Technology Report, Ted Fons will discuss ways in which we can expose our services and content on the open web right now, meeting our users where they are. A panel of librarians will share their first hand experiences implementing the concepts and ideas discussed by Ted. Come with questions, leave with ideas.

Program Objectives
Our cataloging and metadata functions in the library are focused on applying specific rules, accuracy of data and workflows. But what affect does the user have on our work? Based on his Library Technology Report, Ted Fons will discuss ways in which we can focus our work to the needs of our users. The program will include a panel of librarians sharing their first hand experiences implementing the concepts and ideas discussed by Ted Fons.

Target Audience
Professional and paraprofessional cataloging and metadata personnel from academic, public and specialty libraries.

Discussion ACLTS Public Libraries Tech. Services IG at ALA Annual 2016

by Caroline Saccucci on Fri, Jun 17, 2016 at 03:46 pm

Hi Everyone,

I look forward to seeing you all at ALA Annual next weekend.  As you know, we will meet directly after the OCLC Dewey Update Breakfast.  There is a change to the schedule this year, however.

Hi Everyone,

I look forward to seeing you all at ALA Annual next weekend.  As you know, we will meet directly after the OCLC Dewey Update Breakfast.  There is a change to the schedule this year, however.

ALA has announced that a memorial event for the Pulse shooting victims will be held from 8:00-8:30 AM in the Convention Center.   Because of this schedule change,  the Dewey Breakfast presentations will start earlier than usual beginning at 7:00 AM while we enjoy breakfast together and then suspend the meeting from 7:45-8:40 AM to allow attendees to attend the memorial event.  At 8:40 the Dewey Breakfast meeting will continue and then roll directly into the ALCTS Public Libraries Technical Service IG meeting, which I am chairing. 

I hope you will all come to the second half to hear about the newest AutoDewey developments at the Library of Congress and to hear Michele Zwierski from Nassau County Library System talk about matching and "nearly" matching bibliographic records in the online catalog.

We will also have nominations and elections for the chair/vice-chair or chair/co-chair at this meeting.

We will be in the Hilton Orlando, Orange Ballroom C, Saturday, June 25. 

See you soon!

Caroline Saccucci

by Caroline Saccucci on Thu, Feb 5, 2015 at 11:24 am

Hi Everyone,

Thank you to those of you who were able to brave the cold and join us in Chicago for ALA Midwinter 2015.  I mounted the presentation slides and handout from the discussion on the CIP E-books initiative and the proposed revisions to the CIP data block.

We want your feedback, especially for the proposed revisions to the CIP data block, even if you were unable to attend the meeting and hear the presentation.

I look forward to seeing more of you in San Francisco.
