Target Audience: Library administrators at all levels, catalogers
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to list the qualifications required of a cataloging position in today's library environment.
2. Participants will be able to assess and justify the cataloging needs of their library.

Is your library short a cataloger, but at the same time faced with an administrative mandate to hold or cut costs? Or are you a cataloger looking for a position and wondering how to best achieve your goal? This conversation based on research can help you cope from either end of the spectrum. Dr. Sylvia D. Hall-Ellis, representing the library science professor perspective, describes her research into the changing expectations pertaining to cataloging positions. Stacey Bowers reacts to the research in her role as a law library administrator attempting to balance the constraints of the budget with the need to make materials accessible. And just to make it even more interesting, there is the impending implementation of new cataloging rules to deal with, as RDA replaces AACR2.
