Cataloging Ethics: The Force Awakens
Competencies & Education for a Career in Cataloging Interest Group Session
Wednesday, June 10th from 11:00am -12:00pm (CST)
The Cataloging Ethics Steering Committee, with members from cataloging communities in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom, will present their work to-date at the Competencies and Education for a Career in Cataloging Interest Group session.
This effort to produce a cataloging ethics document is in response to a clear interest and need for direction on cataloging ethics expressed through Cataloging and Metadata Management Section (CaMMS) Forums at Midwinter and Annual in 2016. The CaMMS Executive Board formed the Cataloging Ethics Steering Committee to create a dynamic document that embodies the collective experiences and wisdom of the cataloging community of practice – a document that would consist of a framework, with guidance and examples of best practice, which can be shared across the cataloging community. This six-member committee includes representatives from CaMMS, the Metadata and Discovery Group (MDG) (formerly Cataloguing and Indexing Group (CIG)) of the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals (CILIP) in the United Kingdom, and the Cataloguing and Metadata Standards Committee (CMSC) in Canada.
At this session, Cataloging Ethics Steering Committee members will describe the work to-date, present the resulting draft cataloging ethics document, and solicit additional ideas and feedback.
