VT Cataloging Round Table:
The VT Cataloging Round Table meets online every three months on the last Tuesday from 10-11 am.
Meet with catalogers of all experience levels to share questions, concerns, and cataloging conundrums. We can discuss relevant local topics and cataloging-ship wide issues. Send any, and all, ideas you have for agenda items to Lauren.Kelley@Vermont.gov, and come discuss them with your peers or see what other Technical Services Librarians do.
The Registration Calendar will have the Microsoft Teams link and agenda which can be found here.
