Free provider neutral webinars

OCLC will be holding two Webinars on the topic of Provider Neutral E-Books to be presented by Robert Bremer, OCLC Senior Consulting Database Specialist. Robert served on the PCC task group that formulated the provider neutral policy. He will describe how a provider neutral record differs from previous cataloging practices for eBooks, and will also discuss OCLC’s plans for conversion and consolidation of existing eBook records in WorldCat.

You can access the Provider-Neutral E-Monograph MARC Record Guide at:

The two free webinars will be held on Thursday, December 10 at 1:30 PM EST and on Tuesday, December 15 at 11:00 AM EST. Each will last no more than 1 hour.
