Descriptive Cataloging Advisory Working Group Meeting

Descriptive Cataloging Advisory Working Group Meeting
Monday, July 14, 2014
11:45 am - 12:45 pm
Location: Convention Center, Room 216A

Our rather full agenda is attached. Guests are welcome to attend (although in the interests of full disclosure, I must report there will be no enticement of refreshments).

Additional supporting documents have been sent directly to current members of DCAG. If you are a former member and did not re-enlist yourself during our fall campaign, please see incoming Chair, George Prager, after the meeting. (And of course, if you are newly interested in joining this working group, please also feel free to attend, and be ready to roll up your sleeves!).

Wishing safe and hassle-free travels to you all.
