    The Bibliographic Standards Committee of the ACRL* Rare Books and Manuscripts Section is seeking presenters for our Fall Webinar, “Cool Things We Cataloged”. This will be the third year that we have hosted a webinar with this topic. 


    We are looking for a broad range of presenters (catalogers, archivists, paraprofessionals, students, interns, etc.). If you have cataloged something that you think is cool, then consider presenting it. These objects may be a book, map, globe, kitchen implement, garden tool, educational kit, music score, or anything else. Presenters will discuss why an object or a collection of objects was a challenge to catalog, how they cataloged it, resources (such as content standards) that they used to catalog it, and information that they learned while cataloging it.


    Presentations should be 7-10 minutes. The full session will be approximately one hour and will include a period for questions and discussion. This webinar will occur in late October or early November on a week day. It will take place in mid-afternoon if you live in the American Eastern time zone or late morning if you live in the American Pacific time zone or early to mid morning if you live in the Hawaii-Aleutian time zone. 


    If you are interested in presenting, fill out this form by Friday, September 15th at 11:59 p.m. Hawaii-Aleutian time. You do not need to be a member of the ACRL Rare Books and Manuscripts Section to be a presenter.
