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