The American Libary Association’s Midwinter conference is in San Antonio, Texas, this year; it starts tomorrow and runs to Wednesday. I know of at least one FRBR-related event, announced on some mailing lists by Nancy Chaffin of Coloradio State University:
Please attend the ALCTS CCS Cataloging & Classification Research Discussion Group meeting in San Antonio
When: Saturday, January 21, 2006
Where: Henry B. Gonzales Convention Center, Room 208
Glenn Patton, Director, WorldCat Quality Management, OCLC, will give us a short report on where the FRANAR-related work is taking us.
Lois Mai Chan and Ed. O’Neill will talk about the initial activities of the recently formed IFLA Working Group on Subject Authorities (FRASAR) and discuss the challenges for the Group 3 entities.
Tami Morse-McGill, Metadata Librarian at Colorado State University Libraries, will discuss the process she and Nancy Chaffin are developing for building a work key and testing the CSUL collection for FRBR-readiness.
Time will be allowed for questions and answers, followed by a business meeting for the discussion group.
Very interesting reports, but not everyone can make it to Texas! I hope the session gets blogged and commented on. Maybe the speakers will post their slides or notes. If you post something about this or another FRBR event, please let me know!
