It’s documentary, my dear Watson: documentation in technical services

Date: Thursday, April 3, 2014

Time: 3:00-5:00 pm

Have you ever wondered how other libraries manage to keep track of all those local decisions, workflows, cataloger’s judgments, and exceptions to every rule?  So have we which is why we asked 10 librarians to come and discuss the best and the worst of tech. services documentation.  Each will give a strict 5-minute presentation leaving plenty of time for a lively discussion.

Please join us for this fast paced, engaging and, we promise, fun event on all things documentation!
