N.S.A.L.T. conference PowerPoint slides (as promised)

NSALT logoThe 2009 conference of the Nova Scotia Association of Library Technicians was held Friday, October 23rd in Kentville, Nova Scotia.

My presentation was in two parts. 

Part 1 explained the move toward Social Catalogues, with specific references to AquaBrowser, the social catalogue overlay which my library has chosen.  We are still in the beta testing phase at present, but we are excited about the day it goes ‘live’. 

The ‘Social’ Library Catalogue

Part II gave a rudimentary explanation of RDA, FRBR and the changes we are making to the catalogue in order to make it a more efficient online tool.

RDA is on the way

My handouts included many useful web links on the topics of RDA and FRBR.

One response to “N.S.A.L.T. conference PowerPoint slides (as promised)

  1. Lynne–I finally got a chance to look over your PP presentation slides from NSALT and wanted to congratulate you on how wonderful they are! I just wish I could have been there to hear all your words of wisdom! Your slides, however, are so well thought out and informative on their own that I feel like I was there! You are very so handy with the graphics too!
    Most Excellent!

    p.s. I particularly liked the RIP Rule of Three graphic.
