E-Readers for E-Books: Options for Libraries
An SCTPG Workshop
Anaheim Public Library Central Branch
Thursday, June 21, 2012

1:00 – 5:00 P.M.

Heading to ALA this June? Wondering just what to do (or *not* to do) with e-books, and e-reader devices that seem to proliferate every 2.5 seconds? Then spend an afternoon with the Southern California Technical Processes Group as we take on the issues surrounding e-readers and e-books.

The adoption of e-reading devices and e-books in libraries presents a number of challenges, including implementation, selection, management, use, and access. This workshop will provide an overview of the current landscape of devices, platforms, and issues related to the adoption and implementation of e-readers and e-books, with speakers from academic and public libraries, as well as e-book vendors. The panelists are: Michele Potter, Engineering Librarian, U.C. Riverside;  Shirley Quan and Donna Watkins, Orange County Public Libraries; Neil Sorensen representing Ebrary; Kevin Coon, representing OverDrive.

Registration coming soon – please contact Wendy Vermeer (wcvermeer@csupomona.edu) with any questions or comments.

Basic Map Cataloging

July 11, 2006 at UCLA

A Joint California Library Association and SCTPG Workshop

Description:

The primary objective of this workshop is to give the participant a basic knowledge level, and the necessary skills, to ensure creation of accurate and high-quality bibliographic records for sheet maps. At the very least, the participant will come away with a good understanding of the differences inherent between maps and other formats of material, primarily monographs, as well as the variability encountered in individual maps and map sets.

Basic skills that will be taught include: how to decide which title to choose when more than one appears on a map; providing access to other forms of a single title; the proper techniques for measuring a map/group of maps and how to record that and other physical description information; recording scale information correctly when provided and determining a scale when it is not specifically stated; using map-specific fields correctly, and others.

The participant will receive a set of reference materials that will assist them in the process of record creation. 
This workshop will not cover how to catalog: map serials; cartographic CD-ROM products; map analytics; globes; geologic sections, and electronic datasets (GIS or online sites). However, a brief bibliography of source material that will assist the user in cataloging the above material types is included in this packet of information.

Instructor: Paige G. Andrew, Maps Cataloging Librarian, Pennsylvania State University Libraries

Intended Audience:
This course is designed for participants who are already conversant in using the MARC 21 and ISBD standards, AACR2 and the LCRIs, etc.
