The PCC BIBCO and CONSER Operations Committees will meet in joint and
separate sessions at the Library of Congress, May 6-7, 2010.
The primary attendees at the BIBCO OpCo meetings are the 10 designated
BIBCO representatives serving 3-year terms, but attendance is open to
all BIBCO institutions. The BIBCO OpCo website will be updated soon
with new names: http://www.loc.gov/catdir/pcc/bibco/bibco_opco.html
Please contact the BIBCO Coordinator of your intention to attend so
that we can prepare sufficient documentation and accommodate the joint
session with the CONSER Operations Committee.
Agendas for joint and separate sessions will be posted in coming
weeks. We anticipate that the agenda may include:
- the BIBCO Standard Record models for various formats
- issues related to RDA
- PCC membership models
- the 034 in name authority records
- tasks that serve the new PCC Strategic Directions
BIBCO institutions are invited to send additional topics for the agenda
to the BIBCO Coordinator ([log in to unmask]).
