To the BIBCO community, I'll be setting my
alarm clock earlier for the Sunday, January 13 BIBCO-at-large meeting.
BIBCO-related issues run from about 8:40 am to 10:30 am that day.
In drafting agendas for the CONSER-at-large and
BIBCO-at-large meetings on Sunday morning at ALA Midwinter, Les Hawkins and I
try to group reports of interest to both groups into an overlapping time period
so that our OCLC representative and the chairs of the PCC Standing Committees
may give a report once and inform both groups simultaneously. Usually,
that is during the 9:30 to 10 am time slot, in the same room, of course, thanks
to the hospitality of OCLC.
This year, there are additional items that may hold
interest for both groups, including the PCC Series task group's discussion
paper, Integrating Resources cataloging issues, and the LC Working Group as
it pertains to the PCC. We've added those issues beginning at 8:40
am, following the CONSER-specific topics. That's an early call for
the BIBCO crowd, but not impossible.
We're also aware that many of you wish to attend
the ALCTS RDA Update from 10:30 to noon, so we wish to
handle our BIBCO-specific topics from 10 to 10:30 am.
Happily, the At-Large meetings and the ALCTS RDA Update are in the Convention
center--different rooms, but no shuttle bus needed!
Les Hawkins has graciously included the BIBCO items
on the draft agenda at this link to serve both CONSER and BIBCO
Please let me know if you have questions or
comments about these plans. Thanks very much.
