CFP: ALCTS CCS Catalog Management Interest Group (ALA Annual 2010)

The ALCTS CCS Catalog Management Interest Group invites proposals for presentations for our meeting at ALA Annual in Washington, D.C. The group will be meeting on Saturday, June 26, from 1:30-3:30.

For this meeting, we are particularly interested in projects that add or enhance controlled vocabularies in online catalogs, but will consider all proposals meeting the group's charge.

The charge of the Catalog Management Discussion Group is to discuss the various issues involved with cataloging, classification, and authority control after the initial cataloging has been performed. In this respect, catalog management is defined as the continuous upgrading and updating of a catalog, regardless of its format, be it card, microform, book or on-line. The group will provide a forum for exchanging information and discussing techniques, new developments, and problems in managing the bibliographic integrity of library catalogs.

Proposals are due by May 7, 2010.
