Pay attention library folk! The future is under discussion.
Remember the LC Working Group on the Future of Bibliographic Control that we told you about back in December? They are about to hold their second public meeting on May 9 in Chicago. The topic for this meeting is Structures and Standards for Bibliographic Data. The Agenda and Background Paper have been posted on the Group’s Website. And if you actually want to attend the meeting, you can Register Online.
The first public meeting of the Group was held on March 8 in Mountain View, CA and a Brief Summary of that meeting (Users and Uses of Bibliographic Data) has also been posted. The third and final public meeting will be held July 9 in northern Virginia (exact location still to be decided) on the topic of Economics and Organization of Bibliographic Data.
