Hi everyone,

The recent discussion on this list about the Interim report of the PCC Series Policy Task Force reminds me to announce the posting of the PCC training materials on Series Statements and Series Authority Records.

These training materials are now on the Cataloger’s Learning Workshop web site, and are ready for use.   

The training materials were created by PCC members for PCC members, and as you will note in the introductory statement, the materials may be used in multiple ways—in formal classroom settings, in online training, or as self-paced individual or group instruction.  

There are many people to thank for the development of these training materials, and even though their names are mentioned on the training web site, I would like to repeat the names here because these people did some amazing work to make all of this possible:

The PCC SCT RDA Series Training Task Group: Carl Horne, chair (Indiana Univ.), Mary Jane Cuneo (Harvard Univ.), Julie Dyles Darken (Univ. of Georgia), Peter Fletcher (Univ. of Calif. at Los Angeles), Lisa Furubotten (Texas A&M Univ.), Jenifer Marquardt (Univ. of Georgia), Robert L. Maxwell (Brigham Young Univ.), Melanie Polutta (Library of Congress), George Prager (New York Univ.)

The PCC SCT Series Policy Task Force: Ed Jones (National Univ.), Robert Maxwell (Brigham Young Univ.), George Prager (New York Univ., Law), Paul Priebe (Univ. of Calif. at Los Angeles)

The Series Training Materials Editorial Board: Steven Riel, editor-in-chief (Harvard Univ.), Peter Fletcher (Univ. of Calif. at Los Angeles), Julie Dyles Darken (Univ. of Georgia), Jenifer Marquardt (Univ. of Georgia)

Thanks to all for this exciting accomplishment,
