I’ve been meaning to try and organise this event for well over a year; thanks to cpd23 I’m pushng ahead with it now!
So, are you a cataloguer, or someone who works with metadata, in Wales?
Would you like to meet up with other likeminded souls?
I am hoping to organise a day/half-day seminar featuring presentations from cataloguers in Wales, and to enable a networking occasion.
Can you please contact me if you are
a) theoretically interested in attending such an event
b)willing to give a presentation at this event
I am looking for presentations on any of the following themes: special projects, reclassification, retrospective projects, working as a sole cataloguer/one-man band, preparing for RDA, collaborative cataloguing…
but am quite happy to have anything suggested!
Venue: Cardiff University
Date: January/February 2012
Cost: Free (or low cost) – this will be a zero budget event, I just want people to get together in a conducive atmosphere
Please contact me on PierceKF@Cardiff.ac.uk or comment on this blog post.
Feel free to disseminate this post to anyone you think might be interested. Although I am focussing on people who work in Wales (because that is where I am based, and because I think a regional focus will be interesting), I am happy for people who live outside Wales to attend (the more the merrier).
