The December 10 deadline for proposals is coming up soon!

Call for Proposals: Amigos Library Services online conference – “Changing Standards, Local Choices: Navigating the Current Cataloging Landscape”

With the introduction of the new RDA Toolkit, and progress toward the implementation of BIBFRAME being made, the world of cataloging standards is in a state of flux. While many of the changes will be guided by what's happening at the national, or even global, level, they will also rely on a certain amount of local standard creation. Application profiles, local cataloging workflows, and other methods of customization will be very important in helping catalogers implement the changes in a way that works for them, their libraries, and their patrons.

Join us February 10, 2022, for “Changing Standards, Local Choices: Navigating the Current Cataloging Landscape.” This Amigos Library Services online conference will explore ways to prepare for the changes in cataloging standards over the next few years.

Amigos Library Services is now accepting presentation proposals for this conference. Potential topic areas include but are not limited to:

  *   Local implementations of BIBFRAME or other linked data projects
  *   Local application profiles for use of the new RDA Toolkit
  *   Creation of metadata policies and procedures

Please submit your proposal by December 10, 2021 here: Tell us your story and share what attendees can expect to learn from your presentation. Amigos staff will provide all the training for our platform and full technical support during your presentation. All sessions are 45 minutes with time for questions and answers.
