OVGTSL Conference 2017
From book catalogs to PACs to linked data records, Technical Services adapts new tools to deal with new and old resources. AACR2 gives way to RDA, MARC to BIBFRAME. New materials appear for staff to select, acquire, catalog, process, and provide access to. Older cataloging hides in need of updating to current standards: metadata, vocabulary, description, access. Other catalogs are composed of a variety of standards into one access tool. This conference focuses on Technical Services as they seek to update, upgrade, and uplift existing services to provide better service and selection to our users. All this technology is for people, and Technical Services still works to improve management and workflow skills, outreach to new areas, materials, and services within the library and without, and wresting with new security and privacy issues. Still working with others and our principles to create Technical Services by design.
