    November Virtual AskQC Office Hours invitation 

    OCLC invites you to attend either of its Virtual AskQC Office Hours (VAOH) sessions for November 2021.  The presentation on "Cataloging Children's Materials" will cover classification, use of subject headings, and general cataloging principles for children's materials.  We are thankful, during this month of the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday, that OCLC staff will be joined by a guest presenter, Michele Zwierski, one of the editors of the new 6th edition of Cataloging Correctly for Kids.  

    The session will be presented twice to accommodate attendees from multiple time zones:  First on Tuesday, November 9 at 10:00 AM. Eastern time, and a second time on Thursday, November 18 at 4:00 PM Eastern time.  Please note that each of these times is Eastern Standard Time in the United States.  Please adjust for your own time zone.

     Following each presentation, you will have the opportunity to ask questions about the topic or about any other WorldCat quality matter. 

     Registration is available for these two November 2021 VAOH presentations.  At the same site, you can find links to recordings, slides, and Q&A from past presentations.  If you register, you will receive an email reminder before your chosen session along with a link to the WebEx event.  All Virtual AskQC Office Hours are available from OCLC at no charge.

     Everyone is welcome.

     Please excuse any duplication of this message.
