OLAC Conference

Registration is underway for OLAC's 12th biennial conference Preparing for a Brave New World: Media Cataloging on the Threshold of RDA to be held October 26-29, 2006 in Mesa, Arizona (Phoenix Metro Area). The conference website has been updated with schedule and travel details, include roommate matching.

This year's preconference session is an all-day Electronic Serials Cataloging Workshop from SCCTP (Serials Cataloging Cooperative Training Program). A hands-on training course for the ever-growing field of cataloging electronic serials, the curriculum includes advanced problems related to electronic serials, trends and evolving practices, challenges such as aggregations, and case studies.

OLAC 's conference is the place to learn about emerging standards and to attend workshops on the most current best practices for cataloging non-book materials -- Internet or other electronic resources, sound recordings, maps, DVDs, videotapes, or cultural objects. Whether you need to brush up your MARC skills or learn a new metadata scheme, make plans to join us in Phoenix.
