MARC Edit Demo: Bobby Bothmann CATALOGING (New Main, Room L213)
Have you heard of MARC Edit and wondered what all the fuss is about? Do you have some bibliographic record changes in your catalog you want to fix, but you don’t have global change privileges? Do you have some bibliographic records in Aleph you want to bring up to current standards?

This session will provide some case studies with walk through demonstrations addressing some of the questions posed in this description.

St. Cloud State University has formed an EBook Committee to evaluate EReaders in order to determine which model would be best for their library. While their work is still in progress, Rachel would like to share some of the committee's successes and challenges, as well as questions that libraries with EReaders now need to ask about subscription EBook collections.
MARC Changes: Update Your Catalog to Reflect Changes to the MARC Standard: Lori Pesik CATALOGING (Library, Room 302)
This how-to session will discuss how to update your catalog records to reflect changes in the “MARC 21 Format for Bibliographic Data.” Some of these updates can be done in a global, automated fashion. But other updates require human intervention, and we will walk step-by-step through how to make those updates. We will also provide a field-by-field list of information about MARC changes, as well as CCL search strings that will pull records that require updating.

RDA: Loss of GMD and Changes Regarding Type and Format: Bobby Bothmann CATALOGING (Library, Room 302)
The pending decision to move to RDA is still a few months away, but some libraries have already begun following RDA guidelines. AACR2’s general material designation (GMD) is not perpetuated in RDA guidelines. Instead, RDA records define the content of the expression, the medium of the manifestation, and the carrier of the manifestation. This session will discuss the changes that will occur with RDA vocabulary, the issues related to display of the vocabulary particularly as it relates to special formats, and the effect this change may have on the <tab_type_config> display in the Aleph OPAC and in MnPALS Plus.
