2010, the Year of Cataloging Research

In a guest editorial for Cataloging & Classification Quarterly, Allyson Carlyle discusses the ALCTS Implementation Task Group on the LCWG Report's declaration that 2010 will be the year of cataloging research. She encourages library-related organizations to promote programs on cataloging research. She also mentions several way individuals can contribute:
  • Generate and share inspiring research ideas;
  • Do your own research;
  • Present and publish your research;
  • Encourage and support others doing research (fill out those email surveys);
  • Read research papers and articles on bibliographic control;
  • Organize a research program or other event on bibliographic control at a conference you attend;
  • Spread the word-let everyone interested in cataloging, catalogs, metadata, bibliographic control of any sort know about it;
  • Attend programs on cataloging research at ALA and other conferences.

Read the complete editorial in Cataloging & Classification Quarterly, vol. 47, issue 8 (Nov. 2009), pages 687-690.
