I have to check the registration on the Friday event,  I know I had also
seen the fees for the Metadata workshop, which are *considerably pricey
IMHO.*  / best Karen W
Thursday, July 9th - Friday, July 10th *Metadata Standards and Applications:
A "Cataloging for the 21st Century" Workshop*

This two-day preconference explores metadata standards and applications for
bibliographic control in the 21st century. The goal is to relate what
participants already know about library catalog metadata to digital library
metadata, preparing them to apply current knowledge to new areas. Not
primarily a “hands on” workshop for learning how to create metadata,
exercises are included, providing a solid foundation in current metadata
concepts, standards and issues for digital libraries. *Speakers:* Steven
Miller,  University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee; Jennifer Lang, Princeton
University Library.

Registration is open.  Sign-up for these exciting pre-conferences through
the 2009 ALA Annual Conference registration web site at:
