Please come join us for the ALCTS CaMMS Competencies and Education for a
Career in Cataloging Interest Group (CECC IG) session in Atlanta! 
The CECC IG will meet Friday afternoon, January 20, 2017 1:00-2:30 p.m. in
the Georgia World Congress Center (GWCC), B215. 

There will be three presentations given on the theme of successful
cataloging and metadata internship or fellowship experiences.

1). "Sharing knowledge from the perspective of the intern and the
supervisor" presented by Mary Gilbertson, Head of Monographs, University of
Arkansas & Baheya Jaber, Graduate Student, The University of Alabama.

The University of Arkansas recently hosted an intern who did a rotation in
reference and in cataloging.   Mary Gilbertson supervised part of Baheya
Jaber's rotation in the Cataloging Department.  We will talk about the
experience from both a supervisor's and an intern's perspective.  Hosting an
intern is a great service to the library profession.  It allows the intern
to see where they might fit in an organization if working in multiple areas.
It allows an intern to develop some pre-career skills even if in a short
period of time.  It also helps the supervisor to question how they do
things, to stop and look back at the tools and not take for granted what
they think they know, and provides the supervisor an opportunity to not only
teach but to also learn.  It is a mutually beneficial experience.

2). "How to build a successful internship experience for beginning
catalogers" presented by Heylicken (Hayley) Moreno, Database Specialist II
and former diversity fellow, Metadata Operations, WorldCat Quality Control &
Laura Ramsey, Section Manager and former mentor, Metadata Operations,
WorldCat Quality Control.

For several years OCLC housed a fellowship program where recent graduates or
beginning library professionals of diverse minority backgrounds were given
an opportunity to work in WorldCat Quality Control. During the one year
tenure, a dedicated team worked with the fellow through the various
cataloging standards and best practices used in the field, as well as the
internal methods that helped maintained WorldCat. This helped improve and
correct errors found in the WorldCat database by manual and automated
processes. A former mentor and fellow will discuss their respective
experiences working together through the program. Procedural documentation
and role design will be discussed by the mentor, while the discovery process
of cataloging standards and the role of proactive participation will be
discussed by the former fellow.

3). "Teamwork makes the dream work!  Or, many hands make light(er)
internship work" by Sevim McCutcheon, Catalog Librarian and Associate
Professor, Kent State University Libraries.

Some librarians are hesitant to supervise internships because of the time
commitment. Time and effort considerations can be particularly acute in
cataloging and metadata departments, as teaching and providing sufficient
feedback to students in record creation is labor intensive. This academic
librarian will share techniques for easing the workload of internships.  She
will address two aspects: 1. strategies and methods for teaching
pre-professionals to apply standards and principles using current cataloging
tools, and 2. ways to involve others in imparting this content. These
include peer-to-peer teaching (having graduate student workers assist in
training), delegating (as to junior/adjunct faculty), and co-supervision
(collaborating with librarians in other departments and other types of
libraries to broaden the internship student's experiences). Internships can
be a win-win for all:  internship students gain practical knowledge; fellow
graduate students acquire teaching experience; and librarians in the
community get a low-commitment way to help prepare the next generation.
