Christine,

What bums me out as I read about it is that it seems that the more "conservative" voices were not there. Whether they were invited or not of course I can't say, if they weren't, that would be disappointing.

And as much as I'd like to consider you as a good person who could represent those kinds of views (like Mann, Yee, Gorman, etc.), as you yourself said you are on the other "side" now (well, I don't think you said it quite like that... :) )

Thanks Christine,

Nathan

Hi Nathan, Hey! I've been reading David Bade's new book "Responsible Librarianship" :) I'm still trying to listen to all the voices in the debate. But, you're right, in my current work life, I'm "on other side." But I would argue that a lot of traditional cataloging can be brought to bear on non-MARC metadata creation and digital objects. Of course, this is just a working thesis--I'm way too new to metadata librarianship to know where I'm going to end up :)
