Posted with permission. A couple comments.... This should be an excellent workshop, Dr. Fountain knows both cataloging and Spanish very well. Also, what an excellent idea for a workshop. Giving the rest of us some tools and knowledge to better deal with Spanish language materials is a need in many parts of our country. I hope they have a full session and offer the workshop again and again.
