Start the weekend off right and get the most out of your conference attendance with ALCTS 101!

Established members will be on-hand to chat with attendees about ALCTS sections (cataloging, preservation, continuing resources, etc.), interest groups, navigating Annual, publishing opportunities, professional development, and volunteer opportunities. All are welcome - those considering membership with ALCTS, student members, new members, and long-term members wanting a brush-up. A short business meeting for the ALCTS New Member Interest Group will occur at the end of the event, where you can volunteer to serve as the Social Media Coordinator or Student Liaison for the next year.

E-Books: Discovering the Virtual Backlog Program Las Vegas Convention Center
N231/233
Description :

The book truck waiting to be cataloged is gone, but backlogs are not; they’re just harder to find. E-book packages can be accompanied by inaccurate title lists, front files, unavailable or poor quality MARC records, pre-published chapters, and other issues that complicate discovery and undermine the traditional technical services workflow. When this happens resources slip through the cracks creating a hidden virtual backlog. The creativity of today’s cataloger finds and makes discoverable these hidden materials.

Creating Sustainable AV Preservation in Academic Libraries Program Las Vegas Convention Center
N252
Description :

A few leading collecting institutions have developed extensive moving image and recorded sound preservation programs, and have reported their own models at professional conferences. However these prominent examples can feel overwhelming to a library or archive that is only just beginning audiovisual preservation. This presentation will give suggestions and guidelines for librarians working in between the two extremes of large-scale audiovisual preservation and zero priority being given to audiovisual materials.
