Early bird registration ends January 30 for our Thursday, February 13, 2020, online conference, Work Smarter, Not Harder: Innovating Technical Services Workflows.
Are you a "jack-of-all-trades" librarian who wants to spend less time ordering books and more time on the reference desk? Is your busy technical services department looking for ways to automate everyday processes such as editing batches of MARC records from vendors? Do you want to process new items faster to get them into your patrons' hands sooner? Do you simply find yourself wondering, "Is there an easier way to do this?" about any of your library’s technical services work?
The day will start with “Smart Cataloging: Beginning the Move from Batch Processing to Automated Classification,” our keynote session by Terry Reese, who advises that in order to be successful, “libraries in general will need to seek to leverage the wide array of open data sources to improve not only traditional workflows but to also begin leveraging more intelligent services or algorithms for the purposes of automated classification and no-touch cataloging services."
