Over the past eight months, OCLC Member Services staff have been traveling around the U.S. to hear how librarians have faced the challenge to streamline cataloging at a time of reduced budgets and staff. These discussions have provided a great opportunity for all to learn, debate, and exchange practical tips on how to become more efficient–from defining “good enough” cataloging to collaborating on improved workflows, to sharing the latest on RDA and WorldCat quality. In this webinar, you’ll hear two academic librarians share their experiences of reviewing and revising tech services workflows, and cataloging e-books. They will also discuss the key trends and strategies provided by the hundreds of library staff who have contributed to the Good Practices for Great Outcomes series so far, and will end with a discussion of where we go from here.
Presenters: Daphne Kouretas, Member Services consultant, OCLC; Helen Heinrich, cataloging coordinator, California State University, Northridge; Debbi Dinkins, head of technical services, Stetson University
