Interest Group seeks speakers to present at its session during the 2017 ALA
Annual Conference in Chicago on Friday, June 23, 2017, 1:00-2:30 pm.

 

Now that the "Core Competencies for Cataloging and Metadata Professional

those plans into action.

 

Presenters will be allotted approximately 15-20 minutes, with a short time
for questions after the presentations.

 

Please submit a presentation proposal to Susan Rathbun-Grubb
