Anaclare and others,

The task force responsible for the Midwinter workshop (and this
discussion list) is charged with setting up a Web clearinghouse for
educators and trainers to share teaching materials relating to
cataloging and metadata (this is one of the recommendations in Ingrid
Hsieh Yee's report). In addition, there is another task force planning
to assemble resources for the continuing education of catalogers. The
two groups hope to collaborate in finding a host site for both sets of

We are finalizing an agreement with a consultant to assist in designing
and identifying content for the clearinghouse. Anita's URLs and similar
materials will likely find a home there as well.

It would be nice to have the URL's for these tools posted on this
Many of our students do not have access to the Cataloger's Desktop and
not get it due to the cost.  But if we had the URL's the students
access the sites directly.
