    ALA Core Interest Group Week 2023, call for presenters


    The ALA Core Copy Cataloging Interest Group is seeking proposals to present at our forum during the 2023 Core IG week March 6-10, 2023.

    "Copy Cataloging before, during and after an ILS migration"

    We are interested in hearing about individual copy cataloging experiences during the planning and implementation of a new ILS platform.

    Topics may include but are not limited to:

    • Copy cataloging as a consideration when choosing a new ILS platform
    • Training and re-training staff in copy cataloging on a new platform
    • How have workflows changed
    • Pros and cons of migration, i.e. system flaws, what is lacking, what is better
    • Common errors to look for
    • How to prevent common migration errors


    Please send presentation proposals to CCIG co-chairs
