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.
The group's conveners have committed to providing the following activities throughout the year:
- Facilitate year-round discussion in the ALA Connect group;
- Plan an in-person discussion (not a program) at the ALA Annual Conference;
- Offer an online course or webinar through Core's continuing education program;
- Submit a program for consideration to be presented at the Core Exchange, Core Forum, or ALA Annual Conference.
Interest group members do not need to be members of Core, or even of ALA. Anyone with an ALA account can join a Core interest group in ALA Connect. Conveners must be Core members, but anyone can join or leave an interest group at any time.
