Library of Congress Working Group on the Future of Bibliographic Control


I am one of the two ‘at large’ members of the LC Working Group on the Future of Bibliographic Control. A draft final report for comment was released a while ago and today is the final day for responses.
Karen Calhoun submitted a comment [PDF] on behalf of OCLC yesterday.
Update: Prompted by a query: Cliff Lynch and I are ‘at large’ members. Other members were nominated by the following organizations: American Association of Law Libraries, the American Library Association, the Association of Research Libraries, the Special Libraries Association, the National Library of Medicine, the National Agricultural Library, Google, Microsoft Corporation and the Program for Cooperative Cataloging.

Library leaders should be drawn from across the organization. Any idea that technology leaders are overly specialised or too distant from general library work is outmoded and counter-productive.
