Karen Calhoun moves to OCLC

Many of you may recall a report we suggested you read and which was discussed by the Future of Technical Services panel during our MINITEX OCLC Users Group meeting. The report was "The Changing Nature of the Catalog and its Integration with Other Discovery Tools," prepared for the Library of Congress by Karen Calhoun, March 17, 2006.

It has just been announced that Karen Calhoun will join OCLC as VP for OCLC WorldCat and Metadata Services in May.

We live in interesting times.


Great, it wasn't enough that she's worked to throw library cooperative cataloging to the wind through her "work" at LC, but now she's going to be rustling up trouble bringing her "corporate-capitalist" model further to OCLC. We need to take back the co-op, user/owner model of cataloging and resource sharing.
