Would love to join you for this program, but won't be able to. Are there any plans to make transcripts or summaries available via the web? Would urge you to do so for this important topic. Thanks for listening. kst Karen S. Tschanz Technical Services Librarian Seyfarth Shaw Library 55 E.

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.
