Reporters Needed for the ALCTS Newsletter Online (ANO) Mary Beth Weber 15 Jan 2009 18:54 UTC

Dear Colleagues,

I'm looking for reporters to cover two events sponsored by ALCTS that
will take place during the ALA Midwinter Meeting in Denver.  Program
descriptions and time/date and location information follow.   The
reports carry a byline and will be included in the February issue of the
ALCTS Newsletter Online (ANO) which provides coverage of all ALCTS
events from the Midwinter Meeting.  Reports are due by February 16, and
are typically 300-500 words.  If you're interested in serving as a
reporter (you don't need to be an ALCTS member) or could suggest someone
who might be interested, please contact me directly.

*1.  Continuing Resources Section Committee on Holdings Information
Forum: Holdings Information Forum: E-serials holdings: Whether, Why, and

* *The CRS Committee on Holdings Information Forum will take place on
Saturday, January 24, 4:00-5:30 pm in the Colorado Convention Center,
Room 301.

 Unlike in the print world, libraries are no longer the sole suppliers
of the holdings data for electronic serials.  There are many players
involved.  This forum will examine this new reality and address such
questions as: Who has the data? Who provides e-content coverage? Who
needs and uses the data? How is the data exchanged?   In what format?
What are the format standards for electronic holdings data?  And will a
crosswalk between MARC21 and ONIX SOH (currently in version 1.1) benefit
the display of serials holdings information in local systems?

 The panelists are:

Heather Staines (Springer US): The Many Facets of Metadata Exchange
Between Publishers and the Research Community, and the Role that A&I
Services and DOIs (Digital Object Identifiers) Play in Providing Access
to Electronic Content.

Rebecca Gunther (LC) for Linda Miller (LC): ONIX for Serials: How it Can
Map to the MARC21 Holdings Format

Peter McCracken (Co-founder and Director of Research, Serials
Solutions):  The Function and Role of Chronology and Enumeration
Information in ERAMS Tools, Such as A-to-Z Lists and Link Resolver

Myrtle Myers (OCLC):OCLC eSerials Holdings and Beyond

*2. * *Continuing Resources Section Standards Update Forum*

* *The 2009 Midwinter Forum  will feature Peter McCracken, co-chair of
the Knowledge Bases and Related Tools (KBART) working group of the UKSG
and NISO, and Ted Koppel, co-chair of the Cost of Resource Exchange
(CORE) NISO working group.

 The forum will take place on Sunday, January 25, 10:30 am---12:00 pm,
in the Colorado Convention Center, Room 108.
