      The Future of Cataloguing – a world café workshop

      The Cataloguing & Indexing Group in Scotland is delighted to present an all-day event in Edinburgh devoted to the Future of Cataloguing. The event will follow a world café approach in which delegates will explore a range of burning topics around the future of cataloguing.   This will be through breakout sessions facilitated by experts in the field, with delegates moving between sessions and topics through the course of the day.   The topics may change, but we are currently planning sessions on:            The future of authority control, identifiers, linked data          The future of subject analysis and controlled vocabularies (LCSH, FAST, TGN, ...)          The future of content standards (& data models) – convergence and divergence (RDA, ISBD, DCRM, ISADG(G), …)          The future of encoding models and formats – convergence, divergence, emergence (Marc, Bibframe, DC,, EAD, …)          The future of data quality – data sources, data supply, data volume, data management ...          The future of cataloguing practice – what will the cataloguer or metadata manager of the future look like?          The future LMS / catalogue …? In addtion, we are delighted to welcome Alan Danskin from the British Library to help set the scene for the day.  The British Libary's new Metadata Strategy (2019-23) has just been launched, and Alan is expertly placed to provide an overview of the Library's strategy, and how platforms, standards and business processes can come together to help shape cataloguing of the future! A buffet lunch and refreshments will be provided. We look forward to seeing you in Edinburgh in June!
