OCLC Cataloging Community Meeting

A virtual OCLC Cataloging Community Meeting

Please join us on 15 January 2021 from 2:00 pm – 4:30 pm EST for our virtual OCLC Cataloging Community Meeting to hear cataloging members discuss current cataloging trends and to hear cataloging updates from OCLC staff. This session continues the conversation from the successful June 2020 session and expands prior Expert Cataloging Community Sessions at ALA Annual and Midwinter.

Questions and comments may be posed during the presentation in chat. We’ll also look forward to continuing conversations in the OCLC Community Center following this session.

The event will be recorded. All registrants will receive a link to the recording via email after the event.
