CALL FOR PROPOSALS: ALCTS Digital Scholarship Program at the 2017 ALA Annual
Conference  (cross-posted ? please excuse duplication)  The Association for
Library Collections & Technical Services (ALCTS) seeks panelists for a
program to be held at the 2017 ALA Annual Conference in Chicago.  ?Creating
the Future of Digital Scholarship Together: Collaboration from Within Your
Library? will feature librarians involved in the provision of digital
scholarship services describing the range of opportunities for technical
services ' contribution in this emerging field of librarianship.  We seek
speakers who will provide case studies to stimulate ideas for collaboration
between digital scholarship and technical services librarians.  The program
is expected to attract a diverse audience, including librarians from
technical services, public services, and digital scholarship and digital
humanities services.  The date of the program is yet to be determined, but
will occur on either Saturday, June 24 or Sunday, June 25, 2017.
 Those interested in participating on the panel should send an email to the
program planners (contact information below) describing the digital
scholarship efforts in which they are involved, and specifically
contributions those in technical services areas (e.g., cataloging/metadata
services, collection development, preservation) serve in this regard.  We
are interested in highlighting cross-divisional, collaborative digital
scholarship activities as proof of concept for those who have yet to
undertake a more holistic approach to provision of digital scholarship
services.  Our goal is to pull together a complementary set of three
presentations that emphasize the differing aspects of and approaches to
digital scholarship activities in today?s libraries.
 To propose your topic, include:

?       A description of the proposed presentation in 200 words or less.

?       The digital scholarship efforts in which you are involved, and
specifically contributions those in technical services areas (e.g.,
cataloging/metadata services, collection development, preservation) serve in
this regard.

?       Your name, title, email, and phone number

?       Send the proposal to Norm Medeiros and Andrea Wirth (contact
information below) by 5:00 p.m. PST Monday, Nov 14th, 2016.
  Notifications will be made no later than December 16th.  Please don?t
hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

The ALCTS CaMMS Copy Cataloging Interest Group invites presentation
proposals for its ALA Midwinter Meeting in Atlanta on Saturday, January 21,
2017, from 8:30 to 10:00 am.

CCIG's charge is to discuss common problems concerning copy cataloging of
all kinds of materials (monographs, serials, audiovisuals, etc.), quality
control, work flows, staffing needs, training, and effects of changes in
cataloging rules on copy cataloging.

Presentations (not including time for questions and answers) should last no
longer than 20 minutes.

Possible topics might include, but are not limited to:

*       Implementation and maintenance of local controlled vocabularies,
subject headings, or classification systems

*       "Breaking the rules" to satisfy a user need

*       Retooling existing workflows or practices based on public service
work, assessment, or user feedback

*       Meeting the needs of unique user groups

*       Adopting new technologies or standards (e.g., BIBFRAME, RDA)

*       Collaboration with library units that do not perform cataloging

*       Impacts of cross training copy catalogers to work in non-cataloging
functions, such as public service

*       Copy cataloging in a consortium environment

*       Issues surrounding vendor records
