Calling all Internship Supervisors and Interns:

Have you been part of a successful cataloging and/or metadata internship experience? The ALCTS CaMMS Competencies and Education for a Career in Cataloging Interest Group seeks speakers to present at its session during the 2017 ALA Midwinter Meeting in Atlanta on Friday, January 20, 2017, 1:00-2:30 pm.

 

We are interested in the keys to effective internships in preparing future cataloging and metadata professionals, and we would like you to share your strategies and best practices with us. Our interest group discusses the current state of education and employment in cataloging and explores the relationship of cataloging practitioners and employers with library educators.

 

Presentations (not including time for questions and answers) should last no longer than 20 minutes.

 

Please submit a presentation proposal to Susan Rathbun-Grubb ([log in to unmask]) and Allison Yanos ([log in to unmask]), Co-Chairs of the Competencies and Education for a Career in Cataloging Interest Group by Friday, November 18th. Your proposal should include: 1) Proposed presentation title; 2) abstract (up to 150 words); and 3) name and position of presenter.

 

Thank you, and we look forward to reading your proposals.
