Dear PCC libraries:

I am chairing a local University of Washington Libraries task force on 
International Studies cataloging. We need to gather some informal "best 
practices" input from peer institutions.

Do you catalog large amounts of materials in non-Western European 
languages?  Monographs, serials and/or media?

If so, we are interested in talking to you. We are especially interested in 
what you may be doing for materials where your catalogers do not have the 
necessary language expertise.

We are interested ideally in best practices, but it would also be useful 
to hear about what doesn't work.

Please contact me *offlist* ([log in to unmask]) if you are 
interested in sharing your experiences with our task force. Thank you,
