Question for the cataloguers out there - how are you treating the CLE Course Materials and Webinar Archives?
We have been cataloguing to the individual paper level until now - this month and last month I noticed that there were often only 1 or 2 papers included in a course, whereas there are multiple sessions linked in the Webinar Archives (see the Expert Evidence - 2015 for an example: 1 paper, 7 webinars).
As the webinars are very well indexed, I see a value in cataloguing to the individual webinar level as well. Is anyone else doing this?
Any thoughts, suggestions, and opinions are welcome. And thank you!
Please take a look at the information available onÂ CanLII's website and letÂ them know what you think.
The CALL Vendor Liaison Committee is developing a position paper on publication formats, including updated publications.
They have prepared a short survey to gather membersâ€™ views and input on this important and timely issue. The survey takes approximately 10 minutes to complete and responses are anonymous.
CALL encourages all members to answer each question and take advantage of opportunities within the survey to provide textual answers outlining your libraryâ€™s concerns, issues, and needs regarding publication formats (print, bound, loose-leaf, supplemented, electronic books, online subscription products, or other).
The survey will remain open until December 30, 2011.
Thank you for your participation
