Cataloging Norms Interest Group

Purpose

Offers a forum for the exploration, communication, and exchange of ideas on the dynamics and evolution of cataloging/metadata norms and workflows. We encourage and seek out participation from anyone with an interest in cataloging - from public, academic, school, or special libraries - regardless of experience level or training.

This interest group is part of Core's Metadata and Collections Section.
