Looking ahead to ALA, I know I’m always trying to keep track of all the interesting program announcements made through discussion lists and sent by email. So, in preparation for an exciting ALA annual conference in DC, I thought I’d post the programs that I believe are relevant (or interesting) to cataloguers and RAs on The Cataloguing Librarian. Each post will be tagged with “ALA 2010” so that if you do a search on the main page, all the events will be retrieved.
The first one I’m posting is an ALCTS program that came across RADCAT and AUTOCAT yesterday.

Come hear the experts share research ideas for meeting the challenges of a new decade in cataloging, cataloging standards, and online catalog design.
