Call for Speaker(s) for the OLAC Membership Meeting at ALA Midwinter

 Call for Speaker(s) for the OLAC Membership Meeting at ALA Midwinter

OnLine Audiovisual Catalogers, Inc. (OLAC) is an international organization for catalogers concerned with all types of nonprint materials. Through conferences, workshops, publications, and e-mail lists, catalogers exchange information and enjoy expert & practical advice on cataloging audiovisual materials.

The OLAC Executive Board is sending a call for a speaker or panel of speakers to present a brief discussion on a current hot topic in the cataloging and metadata communities as it affects audiovisual and nonprint media cataloging.  Possible topics might include: RDA, FRBR, library linked data, non-MARC metadata, or other, but with a focus on the AV/nonprint formats.

The 30-45 minute presentation or discussion would be held during the OLAC Membership Meeting at the ALA Midwinter Conference in Seattle, Washington, on Sunday, January 27th, 2013,4:00pm - 5:30pm.

The presentation will directly follow the general membership meeting agenda.

If you are interested in presenting a discussion, please submit your topic proposal in an abstract not more than 200 words, by Friday, November 16, 2012, to:
