Please excuse the cross-posting: I have sent this to AUTOCAT, RADCAT, EduCAT, NGC4LIB, and the Metadata Librarians lists. Please feel free to forward it wherever you feel it may be of use; that is, I give you explicit permission to do so.
On Wednesday, May 9th, several colleagues from UIUC and I attended the 2nd meeting of the LoC Working Group on the Future of Bibliographic Control at ALA in Chicago.
I have transcribed my notes, and those of Kathryn La Barre, in a series of blog posts on my blog in the hopes of getting as much of this information out into the public sphere as possible. Comments are certainly welcome.
A teaser and links to Diane Hillmann's posts at the LITA Blog:
Part 1: Welcome(s):
Part 2: David Bade
Part 3: Diane Hillmann
Part 4: Jane Greenberg
Part 5: Jennifer Bowen
Part 6: Public testimony and wrap-up
There is still time to provide written testimony to this Working Group and I highly encourage you to do so. Those of you outside of academic libraries/LIS schools are highly encouraged to do so, as there seems to be little explicit representation by these communities in this process.
Written testimony instructions can be found here:
