The ALA Core MARC Formats Transition Interest Group is looking for two volunteers to serve as Co-Chairs for the 2022-2023 term. The MARC Formats Transition Interest Group provides a forum to educate the library community about ongoing efforts to transition from the MARC Standard for bibliographic data and examines new approaches and strategies for implementing bibliographic data models within the framework of linked open data and semantic web technology.
The Co-Chairs are expected to participate in session planning and delivery, including solicitation for speakers and selection of topics to be presented during the ALA Core Interest Group Week, filing reports to ALA, and selecting incoming Co-Vice Chairs. Attendance at ALA Annual Conferences and LibLearnX is desirable and highly encouraged. No prior experience is necessary.
*ALA Core membership required.
If interested, please submit your name and a brief statement of interest to Brian Clark (firstname.lastname@example.org
) and Cindy Tian (email@example.com
) by June 24th, 2022.
We look forward to hearing from you!
