This panel presentation is from the Association for Library and Information Science Education (ALISE) conference held earlier this year. Technical Services: Past, Present, Future brought Michael Gorman, Janet Swan Hill and Arlene Taylor together to share their views and answer questions. What a great group of speakers!
In her introductory remarks Karen Snow says,
“… this session, the discussion will be about past cataloging rules. The transition between cataloging rules, implementation, and we thought we’d put together panelists who would have a unique perspective on that, and I think we succeeded.”
The following questions were given to the speakers to help guide their comments:
- Where were you working? What were you doing during the transition between the ALA‐LC cataloging rules and AACR1, and/or the transition between AACR1 and AACR2?
- What worked well during this transition?
- What are some of the mistakes that cataloging/technical services should avoid in the transition from AACR2 to RDA?
There are recordings for the introductory remarks, each speaker and the question and answer session that follows. If you prefer to read a transcript is also available. Thanks to Becky Yoose for the heads up!
