NYLINK: Cataloging Conference, Syracuse, NY

Wondering what the future of library catalogs will be? As you look forward to the library world of ten years from now, do you wish you had 2020 vision?

Please join Nylink for “Cataloging Outlook with 2020 Vision”, a conference on cataloging at Le Moyne College in Syracuse on Wednesday, May 19th.

Come and hear noted author and speaker Karen Coyle discuss the need to re-examine our basic precepts for why we have library catalogs and where we are headed. John Myers will update attendees on the latest progress of Resource Description and Access (RDA) and Functional Requirements of Bibliographic Records (FRBR). Sandy Card of Binghamton University will be informing participants on cooperative cataloging arrangements in place at SUNY libraries. Jennifer Bowen will update us on the latest developments of the eXtensible Catalog project at the University of Rochester.
