Our Creative Ideas in Technical Services Interest Group (CITSIG) is pleased to host a virtual discussion called “No More Copy Cats!” about the role of the copy cataloger and the original cataloger on Monday, May 1, from 11:00am – 12:00pm CT. The discussion is open and free to all!
Laura Daniels, Assistant Director of Metadata Production at Cornell University Library will share experiences in Cornell University Library’s Technical Services Department where the distinct roles of “copy” and “original” cataloger were eliminated in favor of a single role of “cataloger”. Laura will share the rationale behind the change and the logistics of how it was implemented, including the impact on workflows and changes to team structure.
An open discussion on the topic of cataloging roles will follow Laura’s short presentation on the topic. Attendees will be invited to share comments verbally or via chat, and if the group would like, discussion is always free to continue on the CITSIG community page.
