My name is Bojana Skarich and I'm a "special formats" Cataloging Librarian at Michigan State University. I mostly catalog maps, DVDs, videos, special collections projects, Russian backlogs and other items. I'm teaching myself how to catalog maps and have been working with this format since June 2012. I had the great luck to be able to attend Paige Andrew's map cataloging workshkop at the Online Audio Visual Cataloger's (OLAC), conference this year in Albuquerque. I learned a lot from this session! I thought I'd join this group to meet some other map librarians and catalogers. I'm not able to attend ALA Midwinter this year, but I am looking forward to meeting many of you in person at Annual in Chicago.
