ALA Annual 2016 Call for Proposals - ALCTS Copy Cataloging Interest Group (Orlando - June 25, 2016)

The ALCTS CaMMS Copy Cataloging Interest Group invites presentation proposals for its ALA Annual Meeting in Orlando on Saturday, June 25, 2016 8:30-10:00 a.m.

CCIG's charge is to discuss common problems concerning copy cataloging of all kinds of materials, quality control, workflows issues, staffing needs, training, and effects of cataloging rules on copy cataloging.

Cataloging is a public service, so our focus for the Annual meeting is how libraries support local needs in a copy cataloging workflow. Presentations should be approximately 20 minutes.

Suggested topics include:
  • Implementation and maintenance of local controlled vocabularies, subject headings, or classification systems
  • Breaking “the rules” to satisfy a user need
  • Retooling existing workflows or practices based on public service work, assessment, or user feedback
  • Meeting the needs of unique user groups

If you are interested in presenting, please email a proposal abstract to Leanne Finnigan ( and April Grey ( by Friday, April 15, 2016.
