  • 1.  Extended! Call for Co-Chairs/Co-Vice-Chair for the ALA Core MARC Formats Transition Interest Group

    Dear Colleagues,

    The ALA Core MARC Formats Transition Interest Group is looking for volunteers to serve as Co-Chairs/Co-Vice-Chairs for the 2024-2025 term.

    The MARC Formats Transition IG is a part of Core's Metadata and Collections Sectionprovides 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. It's truly exciting to see many linked open data initiatives and projects getting closer to a production level implementation. At the same time, MARC is not disappearing anytime soon. Indeed, it continues to be reviewed and updated on a regular basis.

    The Co-Chairs/Co-Vice-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, but one must be a member of ALA Core.

    If interested, please submit your name and a brief statement of interest to the current Co-Chairs Keiko (suzukik@newschool.edu) and Sai Deng (sai.deng@ucf.edu) by Monday, April 22nd, 2024.

    We look forward to hearing from you!
