Wow, I feel like I hit pay dirt. Here's a link to the College of DuPage Press webinar that I really wanted to see:
Cataloging: Where are we now: Where are we going?
Broadcast date: Friday, February 19, 2010
Presenters: Renee Register and Karen Coyle
Librarians are justly proud of their accomplishments in organizing the world’s published information through the use of standard subject headings and the ubiquitous, demanding MARC record. But, with the explosion of more information stored electronically, are our old standards still relevant today? Has keyword trumped the subject heading? Librarians also see their roles changing as more information description and metadata production are handled by other professionals. Will online tagging or vendor descriptions diminish the need for librarians? Questions are rife on what exactly are the thrust of RDA and the new AACR2?
Renee Register, Senior Product Manager at OCLC and Karen Coyle, noted consultant and leader in the area of digital libraries will review current cataloging practices and discuss the future of metadata, the MARC record, the Resource Description and Access standard, and the librarian's place in online information organization and access.
This teleconference is 90 minutes in length--Noon to 1:30 p.m. Eastern Time.
