Dinner with an AALL VIP!

Hi OBS & TS Colleagues,

Are you attending the Annual Meeting Closing Banquet on Tuesday evening July 28?

Are you interested in meeting a Library of Congress colleague whose work products are widely used in technical services departments throughout the world?

If so, RSVP for one of the limited seats available at the table with OBS-SIS VIP (Valuable Invited Participant) Bruce Johnson. Mr. Johnson is a prominent member of the Policy & Standards Division of the Library of Congress and is very active in the American Library Association (ALA). He is a former Chair of the Association for Library Collections and Technical Services (ALCTS), ALA’s home for catalogers and technical services librarians. During his nearly 25 year tenure at the Library of Congress, he developed the LC Rule Interpretations looseleaf service. His efforts for the past fifteen years have been largely focused on Cataloger’s Desktop, which has revolutionized how many catalogers find answers to their cataloging questions. Mr. Johnson presented a program highlighting tips and tricks for using Cataloger's Desktop at the AALL Annual Meeting in Portland in 2009, and is offering free training sessions on this product on July 29, 2010 at the Library of Congress (a few slots are still available; contact Karen Selden ( for details). In addition, Mr. Johnson is an avid and accomplished sailor who regularly participates in regattas on Chesapeake Bay.

Don't miss this unique opportunity to meet, welcome, and introduce this special guest to our law library community! RSVP to Karen Selden (karen.selden AT colorado DOT edu) by Friday July 24!
