OLAC stands for Online Audio-Visual Catalogers. The membership meets at a dedicated conference every two years and is focused on cataloging non-print materials, such as videos, sound recordings, models, etc. They also do work on genre terms, authority work, etc. The cost to join is minimal. Again, I would encourage checking out their website.

Thank you Scott. Shockingly, I have never heard of this group and am very curious.

I have the honor of cataloging our newest planetary globes at Brooks Library. One set will be circulating and the second set will be non-circulating. I am not sure how to approach the task, other than creating a record in OCLC, adjusting header/leader to represent globes, putting in our local location with RDA standards, but as it comes from our GovPubs department, I'm just not feeling confident.
In addition, I am using RDA standards.
Before I begin my research in this new challenge, I am hopeful that some of you are familiar with cataloging globes and will share with us your best practices.
Thank you for sharing.
