Library Summer Hours
Mrs. Polly Revis recently attended an online class from Lyrasis entitled "Changes Ahead with AACR2, RDA and FRBR." Resource Description and Access (RDA), implemented this year, is the new set of guidelines and instructions for cataloging, and FRBR (Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records) will inform cataloging guidelines and the creation of future online catalogs.
I write this as we wrap up our National Library Week festivities. It has been an interesting week of learning and growing and I am glad we launched out into this venture. Still, there was much room for improvement, so we will do things a little differently next year, including moving some of our activities to early in the Fall semester so that everyone will not be too busy to participate. I wish to thank our brave People Books volunteers and our Evening Readers with the hope that they will be willing (along with others) to participate again next time.
In the meantime, it’s on to the next project. The library will be hosting our two regional workshops on scholarly communication on May 25th and have been busily making preparations for that. If you are going to be around and are interested in digital publishing of your scholarly work, I would encourage you to register here. For more information on what these workshops include, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will be busy over the summer improving things here and there, so stop in if you are around, or look forward to something new that’s always just around the corner!
