The ALCTS CaMMS Catalog Management Interest Group (CMIG) invites proposals for 
presentations at ALA's 2014 Midwinter Meeting in Philadelphia. The group will 
be meeting on Saturday, January 25th from 1:00 until 2:30.

CMIG's charge is to discuss the various issues involved with cataloging, 
classification, and authority control after initial cataloging has been 
performed. Catalog management is defined as the continuous upgrading and 
updating of a catalog, regardless of its format, be it card, microform, book, 
or online. The group will provide a forum for exchanging information and 
discussing techniques, new developments, and problems in managing the 
bibliographic integrity of library catalogs.

Presentations should be 15-20 minutes in length. Past presentations have 
covered topics such as adapting catalogs for RDA, patron driven acquisition 
programs, adding facets and genre headings to the catalog, and managing a batch 
OCLC reclamation project.  Other catalog related topics such as record 
retention policies, gathering collection information from the catalog, batch 
generation of records, are also welcome.

Please email your proposal to Wanda Jazayeri (wp...@uci.edu). Proposals are due 
by Wednesday, November 26th.
