The Cataloging Problems Discussion Group is scheduled to meet at lunchtime on Sunday, 1-2 pm. Box lunches are available from the hotel restaurant, 1876, so bring your sandwich and let’s talk about cataloging.

I’ve prepared an overview of the year in art cataloging and posted it at http://artcataloging.net/arlisna/cpdg2008overview.doc — sections on the CAC exhibitions publications guidelines underway, OPACs and 2.0 endeavors, LCSH, MARC, NACO/SACO, etc. We can talk about those topics or whatever fills your cataloger brain. One thing I’d like to talk about is the MARC proposal for a new heading use code, especially as CPSO has promised an easing of the NAF/SAF divide. This is spelled out in a bit more detail in the overview.

Looking forward to seeing folks in Denver.
