Shawn (and others who are interested),

    Unfortunately, due to the fact many of the presentations will use Power
Point it would be impossible to videotape the program and do it justice.
However, after the conference there will be various training sessions on the
new cataloging rules, including a workshop at the NASIG conference, later in
June.  Eventually the program will also appear in some detail in the Committee
to Study Serials Cataloging's ALA web site, though it may take a while.
    That's the best I can say at the moment.  You may want to check with me
after the ALA conference in case there may be further information.

> 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
>              Atlanta, Georgia
> 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
> nature.
> 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.
