Cartographic Resources Cataloging IG (MAGIRT)

Charge

To discuss the basic issues relating to bibliographic control of cartographic resources. To discuss rules and standards covering such cataloging, as well as application of the rules and principles both in general and in response to specific problems, and various practicing options. The group will provide a forum for discussing matters of interest to beginners and experts alike. Because cartographic resources catalogers often have oversight responsibilities for a collection, discussion of administration of cartographic resources cataloging, setting policy for map cataloging, etc., are also appropriate.

Composition

The Cartographic Resources Cataloging Interest Group consists of the Chair and ALA members attending its sessions.

Origin

Established at the 1986 ALA Annual Conference.

Get Involved

Members benefit by having a forum twice a year, at ALA Midwinter Meeting and Annual Conference, in which they can share information, ask questions on cartographic cataloging concerns, receive helpful advice, and propose solutions to difficult questions.
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.
