    Dear All,

    The ALA Core Catalog Form and Function Interest Group is looking for a volunteer to serve a two-year term as Vice-Chair for 2021-2022 and Chair for 2022-2023.
    Vice-chairs* are expected to participate in session planning and delivery for the interest group meeting at ALA Annual. This Interest Group does not currently meet at ALA Midwinter. 

    If you are interested in the ever-evolving functionality of library catalogs and the relationship of library catalogs to the fundamental mission and expanding services of libraries, please submit your name, title, related experience, and contact information to Bela Gupta (bgupta@umassd.edu) and Jim Hahn (jimhahn@upenn.edu) by July 21, 2021. 

    As Vice-Chair, you will assist with the planning and delivery of the Group's meetings, including solicitation for speakers and selection of topics to be presented. As Vice-Chair, you will assume full responsibility for planning the meetings, filing reports to ALA, and selecting incoming Vice-Chairs.

    Please note that no prior experience is necessary, and recent MLIS grads/early career librarians are encouraged to apply.

    For more information about the IG you can email us or check out:
