One librarian’s bleak outlook on the future of cataloguing

I found this post via Cataloguing Futures.   

Brigid Nischla, a library school teacher out of New Jersey, provides her thoughts on the future of cataloguing – which in her mind is “bleak and confusing”.  While I do not take the same grim view and am certainly not willing to throw up my hands and give up on the profession, I believe Ms. Nischla expresses some very serious and valid concerns about the future of cataloguing.

If this is the view many catalogues have out there, these concerns need to be addressed.
