This on-line discussion format will allow for all participants to join the discussion and share their ideas.

This guide is intended for individuals without ready access to print resources and subscription databases in the field of library and information science. It compiles free, full-text resources available on the Web for use by librarians, library technicians, and students in the field. In addition, the Frequently Asked Questions page provides answers to a number of the most common library and information science questions received by the Library of Congress.
How’s your catalog holding up? Are you holding out for a hero or are you just trying to hold on to what you’ve got? If you have something to say about matters related to holdings information in your library, we’re interested in hearing about it at ALA Annual in Orlando. The ALCTS CRS Committee on Holdings Information seeks to address and study matters related to holdings information in all formats, with special attention to standards, use, and functionality in the exchange and use of holdings information in and among systems. The committee’s interests include the application of holdings information wherever it appears, including local catalogs, group catalogs, and union catalogs. If you have a proposal for a related topic and would like to share that topic at ALA Annual, please share your idea.
Some possible ideas include:
- Analytics on Holdings for discovery systems
- Automated holdings projects
- Configuring discovery systems for optimization of holdings
- Holdings among consortia libraries
In an attempt to help ensure presenters can make travel arrangements after confirmation of selection, we’d like to receive proposals by April 4th, 2016 and will attempt to notify selected presenters by April 15.
Submit your topic and brief description (150 words max) to Shelley Almgren, CRS Committee on Holdings Information, Chair, firstname.lastname@example.org
