Seeking Proposals for Presentations
at the Copy Cataloging Interest Group at Midwinter ALA
We would like to invite you to submit
a proposal for a presentation and discussion at the upcoming Midwinter
meeting of the Copy Cataloging Interest Group. The presentation should
be about 15-20 minutes long and the presenter will lead the discussion.
Topics can cover any aspects of copy cataloging in all types of libraries.
Some topics of interest to the group are below. This is not inclusive or
meant to be prescriptive or limiting in any way, just some topics that
seem of current interest or were raised in the IG itself. If you would
kindly submit an abstract or outline of your proposal and I and the vice-chair/chair-elect
will review them and shape a program. I would like to take the opportunity
to introduce you to our new vice-chair/chair-elect, Margaret (Meg) Mering
from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Libraries.
