    March 2022 OCLC Virtual AskQC Office Hours Invitation


    March arrives, meaning that in the Northern Hemisphere, spring begins to melt the ice in preparation for a bracing dip into "Bibliographic Formats and Standards Chapter 3:  A Deep Dive."


    OCLC invites you to attend either Virtual AskQC Office Hour session of "Bibliographic Formats and Standards Chapter 3:  A Deep Dive," in March 2022.  BFAS Chapter 3 immerses the reader in a flood of information about Provider-Neutral cataloging, local information in records, related parts and publications, and such special types of publications as integrating resources.  Let VAOH help you navigate between the Scylla of supplements and the Charybdis of dissertations.


    As usual, "Bibliographic Formats and Standards Chapter 3:  A Deep Dive" will be presented twice to accommodate a wide swath of time zones:  First on Tuesday, March 8 at 10:00 a.m. Eastern time, and a second time on Thursday, March 17 at 4:00 p.m. Eastern time.  Please note that each of these times is Eastern 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 VAOH topic or about any other WorldCat quality matter that comes to mind.


    Topic and registration information is available for these two March 2022 VAOH presentations and for the remaining Office Hours through June 2022.  On the Previous AskQC Office Hours page, you may also tap into the recordings, slides, and Q&A from past VAOH presentations.  If you register for March, 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.
