The notes for last week's Cataloging Advisory Group meeting are available on the Meetings & Documents page. During the meeting, we discussed the outlook of cataloging meetings in 2020. Part of this includes the a new format for the Cataloging Advisory Group.

In 2020, the Cataloging Advisory Group will be changing into a small group of 8-10 members that will meet bi-monthly to tackle specific issues related to cataloging at SWAN. We will refine local MARC cataloging standards, establish quality controls, and reach conclusions regarding emerging formats, local library practice, and any other topics that arise. We are looking for member staff who wish to be a part of this group. While most of the group will consist of members from OCLC Cataloging Libraries, we are reserving seats for representation from Pre-Cat Libraries as well.

The 2020 schedule is as follows. All meetings are on Thursdays from 1:30-4:00.

  • January 9
  • March 5
  • May 7
  • July 9
  • September 3
  • November 5

If you are interested in sitting on the Cataloging Advisory Group in 2020, please e-mail a statement of interest to by close of business Monday, December 2nd. Include whether you are willing to commit to a one- or two-year term. We will be announcing the make-up of the group during the first week of December.
