The focus of this popular event held during ALA Annual in Anaheim, California, was metadata management for e-book collections. Speakers included member librarians Tom Larsen, Head of Monographic Cataloging at Portland State University and Holly Tomren, Head, Metadata Services, Drexel University.  Hear Tom discuss the integration of PDA (patron driven acquisition) into library processes as part of a consortial pilot. Holly shares her library’s experience as a pilot library testing new collection management functionality currently in development at OCLC. David Whitehair, OCLC Senior Product Manager, provides an overview of WorldShare Metadata and the collection management functionality coming later in 2012, and Chris Martire, Director, OCLC Member Services, kicks off the event, which drew 101 participants.
