New Catalogers’ Roundtable


This is just a reminder about the New Catalogers’ Roundtable, which is scheduled to be held on Sunday, July 13, 2008, from 12:00-1:15 PM, in the Oregon Convention Center, room C122.

The program is fairly open, with the following requested items already on the agenda:

* A REVIEW /EVALUATION of the W-1 workshop: Swim, Don't Sink: Immerse Yourself in Law Cataloging. This is your opportunity to speak on what you feel were the highlights, lowlights, and things that can be improved about the workshops, plus to attempt to clarify what went on during Friday and Saturday!
* Discussion of the new LAW CATALOGERS RESOURCE DATABASE, a suggested project for the TS-SIS in which a central repository/forum will be constructed to help clarify and elucidate the various issues of law library cataloging. Get in on the ground floor with your contributions! Give your input on content and format!
* General discussion of issues facing new catalogers – The floor will be open to any questions you may have about any law cataloging topic, from cataloging integrating resources to how you count titles for the ABA’s AQ to what impact RDA will have on law library cataloging.

I heartily encourage all catalogers to attend, whether you consider yourself “new” or not. The Roundtable is about sharing knowledge, meeting new colleagues and encountering new ideas, and helping those new to the profession.

Again, the New Catalogers’ Roundtable will meet:
Sunday, July 13, 2008
12:00-1:15 PM

If you have any questions about the Roundtable, or have any agenda items you would like to see added, please contact me at the address below. I look forward to seeing you there!
