Developing a Library Metadata Policy (free ALCTS e-forum)

The Association for Library Collections & Technical Services (ALCTS) is hosting an e-forum for Developing a Library Metadata Policy. As libraries move toward using non-MARC metadata schema to describe their collections in addition to MARC format cataloging, many discover the need to develop a local metadata policy. This e-forum is intended to be a two-day session to discuss various considerations when developing a Library Metadata Policy.

 The e-forum will take place Oct. 13 – 14, 2010 (from 9 a.m. – 5 a.m. EST) and will be moderated by Melanie Wacker and Susan Massey. Registration is necessary to participate, but it’s free!

 ALCTS e-forums provide opportunities for librarians to discuss matters of interest, led by a moderator, through the e-forum discussion list. The e-forum discussion list works like an e-mail discussion list: register your e-mail address with the list and then you will receive messages and communicate with other participants through an e-mail discussion. Registration is necessary to participate, but it’s free. For more information or to register:
