Dear Colleagues,

I would like to bring to your attention a special TS-SIS program:

Strategize and FRBRize Your OPAC

Many of us are following with great interest the development of RDA (Resource Description and Access - the new AACR). We are waiting to see how FRBR principles will be incorporated into the new code and how our OPACs will evolve. Once RDA is here, however, what are we to do with our existing databases? Will we be able to Post-FRBRize records that were cataloged according to the "old" rules? Claudia Conrad from Innovative Interfaces offers some thought-provoking solutions in her presentation of the new III FRBR model.

You are all invited.

Date: Monday, July 18, 2005
Time: 9:00-9:30 AM
Place: Marriott Riverwalk Salon (EF)

Presenter: Claudia Conrad: Product Manager, Innovative Interfaces Inc.
Coordinator and moderator: Yael Mandelstam, Leo T. Kissam Memorial Library, Fordham University School of Law.
The program was created in cooperation with Keiko Okuhara, William S. Richardson School of Law Library, University of Hawaii at Manoa.

Keep in mind that this is a special TS-SIS program, so it is NOT listed with the Educational Programs. You can find it under "TS-SIS Demo" in the Meetings and Events calendar.
