Dear Colleagues:

The Access, Collections, and Technical Services Section of the California
Library Association (CLA ACTSS) is sponsoring an ALCTS/LC workshop "Metadata
Standards and Applications" on April 25-26 in Davis, California.

This two-day workshop is the second course in the series "Cataloging for the
21st Century." The goal of the course is to relate what attendees already
know about library catalog metadata to digital library metadata, thereby
preparing them to apply their current knowledge to new areas. The course
explores the following topics:
.           Introduction to digital libraries
.           Metadata models
.           Overview of metadata standards and applications
.           Metadata interoperability and distribution
.           Controlled vocabulary use in metadata
.           Application profiles
.           Quality considerations and monitoring metadata developments

This course is designed for practicing catalogers (with or without MLS
degrees) from all types of libraries, with a working knowledge of MARC and
concepts of bibliographic control.

Luiz Mendes (Electronic Resources Librarian) and Mary Woodley (Collection
Development Coordinator), from California State University, Northridge, will
be the instructors for the course.

The workshop is limited to 25 people. Registration fee is $150 (CLA members)
or $190 (non-CLA members). For more information and to register for the
workshop, please visit the ACTSS website:

Please note: ACTSS and Southern California Technical Processes Group will
co-sponsor the same workshop in May, which will be held in Northridge,
California (check  for

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you.
