    The ALCTS CaMMS Competencies and Education for a Career in Cataloging Interest Group seeks speakers to present at its session during the 2017 ALA Annual Conference in Chicago on Friday, June 23, 2017, 1:00-2:30 pm.


    Now that the “Core Competencies for Cataloging and Metadata Professional Librarians” has been officially adopted by ALCTS, we are excited to know how cataloging and metadata practitioners, educators, and managers plan to use the document. We welcome proposals for presentations that explore ideas and preparation for putting those plans into action.


    Presenters will be allotted approximately 15-20 minutes, with a short time for questions after the presentations.


    Please submit a presentation proposal to Susan Rathbun-Grubb (srathbun@mailbox.sc.edu) and Allison Yanos (Allison_Yanos@baylor.edu), Co-Chairs of the Competencies and Education for a Career in Cataloging Interest Group by May 15th. Your proposal should include: 1) Proposed presentation title; 2) abstract (up to 150 words); and 3) name and position of presenter(s).


    Thank you, and we look forward to reading your proposals.
