Cat and Class Meetings

Message from Amy Lovell, Chair, Cataloging and Classification committee:

Hello Everyone!

I would like to bring to your attention three Cataloging and Classification meetings/roundtables to be held at the AALL Conference in San Antonio.

The C&C meeting and the two roundtables are open to all.

I. TS-SIS Cataloging and Classification Committee Meeting
Monday, July 18, 2005 (7 a.m.-8:45 a.m.) Marriott Rivercenter Salon B
Agenda topics include reports from the CC:DA, SAC, and MARBI representatives, a report from the Task Group on Replacement Volumes, and an update from LC. (A few breakfast snacks and beverages will be available.)

II. TS-SIS New Law Catalogers Roundtable
Monday, July 18, 2005 (5:15 p.m.-6:15 p.m.) HBGCC - Room 213(A)
The New Law Catalogers Roundtable is intended to be an open forum for new/newer law catalogers to discuss the issues and concerns they face as new law catalogers. Whether you just want to verify that you are approaching an issue the right way or you need to clarify something really is the wrong way, please join your peers at this roundtable for a discussion of all things cataloging. "Seasoned" catalogers are also encouraged to attend!

III. TS-SIS Cataloging & Classification Issues Roundtable
Tuesday, July 19, 2005 (5:15 p.m. - 6:15 p.m.) Marriott Riverwalk Salon D.
There are two issues currently on the agenda for the C&C Roundtable. First there will be a report from the Inherently Legal Subject Headings Project and any necessary follow-up discussion. Then discussion will move to issues raised during the CC:DA representative's report. In the interest of enhancing the discussion, it is recommended that you review AACR2 Chapter 25:Uniform Titles and the corresponding rule interpretations. While you are reviewing the chapter, think about what purpose is served by : Laws, etc. (Compiled statutes...), Laws, etc. (Session laws...), and Treaties, etc. As time allows, please feel free to raise additional topics for discussion.

If you have additional agenda items for the C&C committee meeting, please email me at (lovell[at] Or if you have a question or issue you would like to raise at either of the roundtables but are too shy or embarrassed to bring it up, you can email me at (lovell[at] with the details and I will bring up the issue for you.

Till San Antonio...
