An official ALCTS program, presented jointly by ALCTS/SS/CSSC (Committee to
Study Serials Cataloging) and ALCTS/CCS/CC:DA (Cataloging Committee:
Description and Access).

2002 ALA Annual Conference.

Date:   Monday, June 17, 2002
Time:   1:30-5:30 p.m.
Place:   Georgia World Congress Center, Rm. A411

The world of cataloging is changing. Fueling much of this change is the
proliferation of electronic resources, especially web-based resources. At
the same time, new concepts in cataloging have been emerging.  Among the
most important is the introduction of the concept of "seriality" to address
change within bibliographic resources issued over time. In response to this
rethinking of cataloging conventions, the chapter for serials in AACR2,
Chapter 12, has been revised and expanded to cover all "Continuing
Resources" and will soon be implemented.

This CSSC/CC:DA program will provide an introduction to the revised chapter
and the related rule changes.  It is intended for a broad spectrum of
catalogers: those who catalog serials, monographs (especially loose-leaf
publications), electronic resources, and any other material of a continuing

The program will begin with a broad overview of the revised Chapter 12 and
then proceed to the particulars of the new category of "Integrating
Resources."  Jean Hirons (Library of
Congress) will speak on the concepts, definitions, and descriptive
cataloging revisions involved. Regina Reynolds (Library of Congress) will
speak on the newly introduced concepts of Major and Minor changes.
Following them are two speakers who will focus on integrating resources:
Rhonda Lawrence (UCLA Law
Library) will speak on cataloging loose-leafs, and Adam Schiff (University
of Washington) will speak on cataloging web-based resources.

Afterwards, time permitting, the Committee to Study Serials Cataloging will
conduct a brief business meeting, with reports from the committee's CC:DA
Liaison, as well as reports from the Library of Congress and NSDP on
serial-related activities.

Please join us for this important program on the ongoing changes in the
cataloging world.
