ALCTS Session Notes from ALA have just been released in their September newsletter. I wrote a summary of the session on Cooperative Collection Development with Christine Dulaney from the Congressional Research Service, Ivy Anderson from California Digital Library, and Kathy Tesla from Carleton College.
Here is a list of some of the other sessions featured within –
- Publishing, Not Perishing: Writing for Publication
- Preservation Forensics and Document Optical Archaeology at the Library of Congress
- Converging Metadata Standards in Cultural Institutions: Apples and Oranges
- Multiple Formats and Copies in a Digital Age: Acceptance, Tolerance, Elimination
- Strategic Future of Print Collections in Research Libraries Cataloging and Beyond: The Year of Cataloging Research
- Emerging Research in Collection Management and Development
- Open to Change: Open Source and Next Generation ILS and ERMS Negotiating the Downturn: Collection Development for Tough Times
- ALCTS President’s Program: Got Data? New Roles for Libraries in Shaping 21st Century Research
I know that these will be worth a look.
