    We will also leave some time for any follow-up discussion generated from the MAGIRT "Maps the RDA Way" program and the "Public Hearing for Descriptive Cataloging of Rare Materials (C) Cartographic Materials" session, both on Saturday.


    It's an exciting conference for cartographic resources cataloging! 


    Please feel free to bring other cartographic resources cataloging topics of interest and we will try to cover them as time permits. As usual, notes from the session will be shared widely after the meeting.


    The Cartographic Resources Cataloging Interest Group meeting is an open discussion session for addressing topics of interest to the cartographic and geospatial resources cataloging community.  All Conference attendees are welcome to join and participate. 


    I hope to see many of you in Chicago!
