Bibliographic Control: A Meeting Between Educators and Practitioners
ALA Midwinter 2012/ALISE 2012 Meeting
Friday, January 20, 2012: 1:30-3:00 p.m.
"On the Record", the report of the Library of Congress Working Group on the Future of Bibliographic Control stresses the need for an up-to-date educational preparation of catalogers, metadata specialists, indexers, and other librarians and information professionals, so that the educational system will continue to produce professional librarians whose skill sets match the needs of the marketplace that they will be entering.
To address this issue ALCTS and ALISE are convening a meeting for librarians involved in bibliographic control (writ large) and educators. This hour and a half-long forum will provide a venue for educators, practitioners, managers and recent grads/students to share their perspectives on cataloging education, continuing education, and on-the-job training.
Mark your calendars. We hope you'll plan to attend and participate in the conversation.
