I hope UC serials catalogers have looked at the draft documentation for the CONSER standard record: http://www.loc.gov/catdir/cpso/conser.html. I am currently in the process of writing the training materials that need to align with this documentation, so I really need your help! (As a cataloger myself, I've already encountered potential issues with maintenance of records, a big part of our CONSER Funnel work.) The "official" statement on the CPSO Web page is for comments to go to the chairs of the original Working Group, but let's use this blog to share thoughts with each other first, cataloger to cataloger.
One important note: ignore the instructions re: phased implementation, some elements to be implemented Feb. 1, 2007 and the others on indefinite hold. THIS IS NO LONGER TRUE. It was agreed at the ALA CONSER At Large meeting on Jan. 21 to delay implementation altogether until outstanding issues have been resolved, with the hopes that this delay will be of relatively short duration.
Please, please, please -- let us all share our cataloging questions, concerns, problems!
