2. Monday, June 27, 10:30 am-noon, Hilton, Grand Salon C

SAC and the Committee on Cataloging: Description and Access (CC:DA) will hold a joint meeting to discuss the place of subject in the FRBR family of standards and how the JSC will begin to address the need for subject entities and relationships in RDA.

SAC will be holding "green" meetings, in other words, copies of the handouts and reports will not be distributed at the SAC business meetings. Most of the reports will be in ALA Connect (http://connect.ala.org/node/64185) before the conference (some will be posted after) and are available to the public.

Collection Development and Electronic Resources (CMS)

Sunday, June 26, 8-10 am, Hilton Riverside Hotel, Kabacoff Room

The CMDS Collection Development and Electronic Resources Committee will meet on Sunday, June 26, from 8 to 10 am in the Kabacoff Room of the Hilton Riverside Hotel, Two Poydras Street.

Council of Regional Groups (CRG)

Sunday, June 26, 1:30-3:30 pm, Morial Convention Center, Room 241

This will be the final meeting held under the name Council of Regional Groups. Beginning after this Annual Conference, CRG will become the ALCTS Affiliate Relations Committee, reporting directly to the ALCTS Board of Directors. The reason for the change is to increase CRG’s visibility within ALCTS and ALA, and to change the name to one which is more descriptive of CRG’s area of responsibility.

CRG will continue its activities on behalf of all ALCTS Affiliate Groups and will consist of many of the same people, with Marlene Harris as the first chair of the Affiliate Relations Committee. Marlene is active in the public library arena, and has brought great energy and organizational skills to the Council.

See you in New Orleans! Louise Ratliff, (mailto:lratliff@library.ucla.edu) Chair, Council of Regional Groups
