    February 2022 OCLC Virtual AskQC Office Hours Invitation

    In case you hadn't noticed, the Virtual AskQC Office Hours have taken December and January off.  If you are now ready for your next VAOH fix, OCLC invites you to attend either session of "Getting a Fix on Fixed Field Elements, Part 2," in February 2022.  "Part 2" will cover the elements in field 008/18-34 that are valid in only one or two bibliographic formats.  "Part 1," presented in October 2021, covered elements common to all bibliographic formats (Leader, fields 001 and 005, field 008/00-17 and 008/35-39), field 006, and some of the elements that vary among the bibliographic formats (field 008/18-34).  If you missed "Part 1" or want to enjoy it again, you can find it on the Previous AskQC Office Hours page.

    As usual, "Getting a Fix on Fixed Field Elements, Part 2". will be presented twice to accommodate a wide swath of time zones:  First on Tuesday, February 8 at 10:00 a.m. Eastern time, and a second time on Thursday, February 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 February 2022 VAOH presentations and for the remaining Office Hours through June 2022.  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.
