NYTSL Fall Program: The Future of MARC

Fall Program Friday, November 4, 2011

The Future of MARC

Location: The Carroll Classroom in the Uris Center for Education at The
Metropolitan Museum of Art.  1000 Fifth Avenue at 82nd Street, New York
City.  Use the 81st Street entrance behind the south fountain.
Time: 6:00 - 8:30 pm

Join NYTSL for our annual fall program as we discuss the future of
bibliographic description and MARC with former LOC "digital pioneer"
Rebecca Guenther. Building off our Spring Program on RDA, we'll be looking
at how or if MARC can support the content new standard. Does MARC need to
change? Or do we need to support new structure and encoding standards for
RDA?

Rebecca Guenther has 35 years of experience in national libraries,
primarily working on library technology standards related to digital
libraries. Most of her professional life has been at the Library of
Congress developing national and international standards related to
metadata. This includes 22 years on the development and maintenance of the
MARC formats and the development of related XML formats, such as MODS and
MADS. She has served on numerous standards and implementation committees,
several as chair, is widely published in professional literature, and has
given many tutorials, workshops and presentations. She recently began to
explore use of semantic web technology and the potential of Linked Data.
She left the Library of Congress in August 2011 to work as a consultant on
metadata development and planning.

ACRL/NY Annual Symposium – Friday, December 10, 2010

Dear colleagues and friends,

Please save the date!

ACRL/NY Annual Symposium

*Innovation by Design: Revisioning the Library — Friday, December
10, 2010*

Design impacts everything we do.  What does this mean for
libraries?  Design comes into play as we craft our collections,
create instruction programs, construct user-centered websites,
renovate buildings, and redesign our policies.  It mediates our
information-seeking behavior, connects us with both students and
faculty, and influences our interactions with our physical
environment.  This year’s symposium looks at design in academic
libraries from four very different perspectives.  Come join the
conversation.
http://acrlnysymp2010.wordpress.com/_
Registration will open on October 4th.

Location:
The William and Anita Newman Vertical Campus Conference Center

Baruch College

55 Lexington Avenue (at 24th Street) Room 14-220 (14th floor)

New York, NY

We hope to see you there.
