LC Working Group on the future of bibliographic control


The LC Working Group on Bibliographic Control is having an open meeting about ‘uses and users’ of data on 8th March at Google in Mountain View, California. This is the first of three open meetings. There will be several expert speakers, and interested parties are invited to attend or submit written testimony to the group. Details of the public meeting schedule are posted on the LC website.
The dates and topics of other meetings are also noted there.
Note: I am a member of the Working Group.

So-called soft skills are hard

So-called soft skills are important across a range of library activities. Existing trends will further amplify this importance. Describing these skills as soft may be misleading, or even damaging. They should be recognized as learnable and teachable, and should be explicitly supported and rewarded.
