To: Independent NACO libraries
Subject: Tenth Series Institute
The Program for Cooperative Cataloging will present the tenth
Series Institute for NACO libraries March 10-12, 1999 at LC.
Judy Kuhagen, Senior Policy Specialist in the Cataloging Policy
and Support Office, will be the instructor for the course, which
has received excellent reviews from all who have attended. The
Institute is open to all independent NACO librarians who have not
yet been trained in series contribution.
This course will focus on the relevant chapters of AACR2R,
the LCRIs, the US MARC Authority Format, and searching techniques
for series. At the end of the course, participants will be able
to contribute series authority records to the National Authority
File. In addition, participants are encouraged to train
colleagues in their home institutions to contribute SARs.
Sessions run all day Wednesday-Friday. If you come from a
distance, you may wish to arrive a day early. Staying until
Sunday often gives you a lower airfare. There is no charge for
the course itself, but participants will be responsible for their
own transportation, housing, and meals.
If you are interested in participating in this training
session, please contact Carolyn Sturtevant at the email address
below by Friday, February 5. Expressions of interest will be
accepted on a first come, first served basis. For more
information about this training, please contact your NACO liaison
on the Coop Team.
Please include in your expression of interest the following:
We hope to reserve a group of rooms at a nearby hotel at a
government rate for any participants who wish to stay there. Your
confirmation notice will contain all the pertinent information.
