The Library of Congress is pleased to announce the permanent appointment of Anthony R. D. Franks to the position of Team Leader, Cooperative Cataloging Team. Mr. Franks is already familiar to many participants in the Program for Cooperative Cataloging from his years of work on the Coop Team. He has been active as a NACO and SACO trainer and reviewer. His commitment to the PCC has involved several lengthy tours through the US and Europe to conduct training and information sessions, as well as articles on international participation in the program. He has also been active in ALA special interest sessions and in PCC task groups. Mr. Franks looks forward to working within the Library of Congress, the Program for Cooperative Cataloging, and with interested parties in the information profession for the expansion of quality access to information resources through current and projected PCC training programs. He also hopes to see the full realization of the PCC's potential as a fully cooperative environment. Anthony Franks is a graduate of Georgetown University with an M.A. in medieval studies from Catholic University of America. During his Catholic University career, he served as a graduate student member of the university's Board of Trustees. Several years as a reference and cataloger librarian at the Folger Shakespeare Memorial Library lead him to return to Catholic University for a Master in Library Science degree. Before and since that time, he has worked at a number of institutions as a reading room supervisor or technical services librarian with an emphasis in special materials and foreign languages.
