Next Generation Catalog IG Meeting at Annual

The LITA Next Generation Catalog Interest Group (NGCIG) will hold its
inaugural meeting at the ALA Annual Meeting in Washington, DC, on
Saturday, June 23, from 1:30 to 3:30 in the Madison Hotel Montpelier
Salon I. We will have a managed discussion featuring presentations
on three libraries’ approaches to next generation catalogs:

Don Barlow, Westerville Public Library, will discuss their work
with Innovative’s Encore product

Dale Poulter, Vanderbilt University, will discuss their work with
Ex Libris’ Primo

Steve Shadle, University of Washington, will discuss their
implementation of OCLC’s WorldCat Local

LITA IG meetings are open to all ALA attendees (and for non-attendees,
we already have a couple of bloggers lined up). Since this is a
discussion and not a formal program, we’re relying on you to show up
with questions and input.
