RDA Training Needs

July 13, 2012

Back in February I mentioned that Celine Carty, Helen Williams and I have an article coming out in the Journal of Library Metdata

In a nice end to a busy week, as first author I just received proofs and a request to complete the copyright declaration form. For those of you who have asked, here’s the citation information and estimated publication times from the publisher:

“Mind the [trans-Atlantic] gap, please”: awareness and training needs of UK cataloguers
(ID: 699854 DOI:10.1080/19386389.2012.699854)

Journal: Journal of Library Metadata (Download Current Citation: RIS BibTex)
Estimated Publication date – 14 Aug 2012 (Online) , 04 Sep 2012 (Print)
Authors: Anne Welsh, Celine Carty & Helen Williams

As is the way of peer-reviewed articles, some of the issues we raised have moved on somewhat since the article went to press, but we hope that it captures a specific moment (April 2011) in the transition from AACR2 to RDA.


Quiet here, busy there

April 22, 2011

I’ve been a bit quiet here, although I have unwritten blog posts stacking up, about the Cilip Executive Briefing on RDA and the amazing CIG eForum on RDA. That’s because a fair bit of time is being taken up populating our new UCL Department of Information Studies Student Blog.

A place to share professional news about current students and alumni (including SLAIS alumni), although it was set up this month, we want to backfill with news that has been scattered across other UCL DIS webpages.

If you are a DIS student or one of our alumni, and you have news to share, you can email me at work, or tweet to @UCLDISstudents
