The webinar considers a provocative question: Is technical services dead? Presenters will discuss the recent past, the present and the future of cataloging and technical services and explore whether there is a future for “traditional” acquisitions and cataloging and other technical services skills. In addition, presenters will explore the future of metadata, MARC, RDA, and BIBFRAME.
