ALA values committed and active members. Any ALA member is welcome to participate in this interest group. Members must have an interest in the work of the group and should be able to attend Annual Conferences and Midwinter Meetings to participate in the meetings and activities of the group. Work and discussion between conferences via e-mail and ALA Connect is also important. There's no need to register or apply to join this group—just be sure to join the group's Connect space. You are encouraged to contact the current chair to let them know that you've become a member.

The Cataloging Norms Interest Group is looking for two volunteers to serve as Co-vice Chair every year. After serving for one year as co-vice chair, they will become co-chair for following year. You are expected to attend the Midwinter Meetings and Annual Conferences during the time covered. If you are interested in the dynamics of cataloging norms and how they are changing in today's new digital and Internet environment, please submit your name, title and related experience to the  incumbent co-chairs.
