I might not apply to this, because the actual link to the NACO Series Institute describes a situation in which we will get reviewed until we achieve independent status. We are independent for series authority work, thanks to Ana Salinas, but I never got the actual traning from LC.

Read on:

"At the end of the course, participants will undergo review until they reach independence for contributing series authority records to the Library of Congress/NACO Authority File. Institutions with previous graduates of the series institute are expected to perform review for the new series trainees they send. In addition, Series Institute participant graduates are encouraged to train colleagues in their home institutions to contribute SARs."

The link:

Too bad. I thought it would like more like a refresher course or what not.

Accommodations have now been set aside for the Institute at a nearby hotel for 3 or 4 nights--your choice.  Information will be sent with confirmations, which must be earlier than this notice states for reservations to be made.

Apologies for cross-posting to multiple PCC lists.
To:  Experienced catalogers at PCC institutions with independent NACO Status
The Program for Cooperative Cataloging will present a NACO Series Institute at the Library of Congress, October 26-28, 2005.  It is open to experienced catalogers whose institutions have earned independent status for NACO contributions.  The class size is limited, and registration is required.
Friday, September 16, 2005 is the deadline for registration.  Registrants will receive an acknowledgment of the registration form, which does not guarantee a place in the course.  Confirmations will be sent to participants by Monday, September 26, 2005.
Information describing the Series Institute and the Registration Form are at:
Judy Kuhagen (LC CPSO) and other PCC series will share the instruction duties.
Caution:  The information about accommodations has not yet been updated fully.  We are negotiating for the most favorable rate for the hotel nearest the Library of Congress.  Please do not make irreversible travel plans before you receive a confirmation to attend the course or before we issue current details about housing options.  Thanks.
