OCLC Cataloging Community Meeting Resources

On Wednesday, 17 June 2020 OCLC held our first virtual Cataloging Community Meeting which expanded on previously held Expert Cataloging Community Sharing sessions at ALA. During this meeting, cataloging members had an opportunity to share information on pertinent cataloging topics with OCLC staff and almost a thousand catalogers around the globe.  

A sincere thank you to all who were able to join the discussions and to our speakers for their important and informative presentations.  For those who were unable to attend (or would like to share with colleagues), please see below for links to presentation decks, meeting notes and video recordings!

Sincerely,

Nathan Putnam, OCLC Director, Metadata Quality
