Presentation Slides from CALL/ACBD Conference in Calgary

26May2011 at 9:14 pm (General) (, , , , )

It was great to see so many friends and colleagues at the recent Canadian Association of Law Libraries/L’Association canadienne des bibliothèques de droit (CALL/ACBD) conference in sunny Calgary, Alberta. Especially nice to get together with most of the KF Modified group and get some work done on a couple of more enhancements. I’ll report more on the KF Modified Committee meeting in a few days.

The presentation slides and cataloguing exercises are now available. If you didn’t happen to be one of the thirty or so attendees at the session last Wednesday morning now’s the chance to brush up on your KF Modified cataloguing. The session, Working With KF Modified: Changes and Enhancements, went very well even if we were rather swallowed up in the very large room we were assigned. Great facility though which made delivering the presentation a pleasure.

On behalf of Rashid, Darren and myself thanks to everyone who made it out bright and early on Wednesday morning and even after the closing banquet! Much appreciated!!

Here’s the three of us plus Alain Rochefort after the presentation*.

1st Quarter Update for 2011 – Please Take Note

6May2011 at 10:50 am (Updates)

The updates for the first quarter have just be completed and submitted to CALL/ACBD headquarters so you should be receiving your copies shortly.

There is a small conflict due to LC’s addition of KF277.L38 the new number for Legal education. Study and teaching. Particular subjects, A-Z. Law and literatureKF277.L38 had previously been established as a local number for Law and society and as a result I’ve had to bump that older number to KF277.L387.

This of course means a bit of reclassification will be in order.  But if our collection is any indication there haven’t been too many titles placed in the old KF277.L38 class number so the disruption should be minimal.
