If anyone would like to report back for us on this meeting, please let Holly or myself know. Holly will be at midwinter, but I will not, so our reporting strength will be somewhat limited. Be a contributor!–Beth


RBMS Technical Services Discussion Group

ALA Midwinter Meeting, 2014

January 26, 10:30-11:30am

Pennsylvania Convention Center  115A

Draft Agenda

  1. Introductions
  2. Collaboration and Communication

Cataloging departments can tend to be insular places, yet for many catalogers, interaction and dialogue with other departments can be a huge help to our work. How do we make the most of our relationships with public service, acquisitions, or preservation departments?  What information can be both given and received from working with other areas of the library, and how might that help us create better information and a more useful experience for our patrons?

Come share your experiences of working with the other professionals of your library. What have been some successful workflows? What have been some spectacular miscommunications that might shed light on how we can work with each other in the future?  Both the challenges and the triumphs of collaboration will be discussed.
