ALCTS Session Summaries from ALA

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.
