CIG Annual Conference and AGM 2004

The future of cataloguing: CIG Annual Conference and AGM 2004

The Cataloguing & Indexing Group Annual Conference will be held at the University of Bath, from 30th June to 2nd July. The theme of this year's conference is, "The future of cataloguing". We are currently experiencing an exciting and important period of change, in which new technologies are allied with the traditional professional disciplines to enhance the quality and scope of resource discovery for the end user. Despite this, as Keith Trickey recently argued in these pages, training of recruits to the profession appears to neglect this core skill set. These issues are reflected in the conference strands of "New and emerging standards" and "Professional Education."

Thanks again Ian.
