OLAC

Another useful organization for catalogers is OLAC, the OnLine Audiovisual Catalogers.

Their statement of purpose is "In 1980, OLAC was founded to establish and maintain a group that could speak for catalogers of audiovisual materials. OLAC provides a means for exchange of information, continuing education, and communication among catalogers of audiovisual materials and with the Library of Congress. While maintaining a voice with the bibliographic utilities that speak for catalogers of audiovisual materials, OLAC works toward common understanding of AV cataloging practices and standards."

Dues are merely $12.00 a year with discounts given for multiple year subscriptions. Well worth the investment.
