This time last week I was speaking at the CIG Conference on how we indexed resources for the Falls Community of Practice. I was only able to attend the final day because of other work commitments, but the conference programme was varied and interesting. Now you can see the slides, in PowerPoint or HTML format on the conference website.

This week is all about getting ready for the Cataloguing & Indexing Group Conference, Classification and Subject Retrieval in the 21st Century. Really looking forward to speaking in Glasgow, though sad to miss the main conference day because of other commitments.
I had particularly wanted to hear Aida Slavic’s paper ‘Classification on the network: machine readable, shared, cloned and hidden’ and Charlotte Smith’s, ‘The adoption of social tagging in academic libraries: a leap of faith or a descent into the abyss?’, both of which are being delivered on Thursday afternoon.
Still, it will be good to be in the company of so many professional cataloguers again, if only for the one day this time. Now I just need to get my own slides finished … my former boss and I have put together a presentation on how we use both traditional cataloguing and social software tagging on the Falls Community.
