The ALCTS CaMMS Copy Cataloging Interest Group is inviting speakers to present at its session for ALA Annual Conference in Las Vegas on Saturday, June 28, 2014 from 8:30 a.m.-10 a.m.  Our charge is to discuss informally common problems concerning copy cataloging of all kinds of materials (monographs, serials, audiovisual, etc.), quality control, workflows issues, staffing needs, training and effects of cataloging rules on copy cataloging. 


In particular, topics on RDA implementation, especially as it relates to copy cataloging; approaches and experiences to training staff under RDA; and RDA and discovery layers: challenges and successes are welcomed.  


Please email proposal abstracts to the co-chairs by Friday, May 16th 2014.  If you have questions, please contact us. Thank you!
