At its February 2011 meeting, the Technical Services Council voted to become the Cataloging & Metadata Council (CMC). In addition to a narrowing in focus to cataloging and cataloging related issues, the other significant change to the Council’s charge is in terms of membership, which now includes a member from each of the self-cataloging units represented in OskiCat. The membership continues to include public service representatives from the Subject Councils. The complete charge and roster can be found on the Library’s Staff Web: http://www.lib.berkeley.edu/AboutLibrary/cmc.html
The final meeting of the Technical Services Council was held yesterday, March 15, 2011.
The Cataloging and Metadata Council will continue with the TSC meeting schedule and will meet the third Tuesday of every month, from 1:30-3pm. CMC’s first meeting is Tuesday, April 19th, from 1:30-3pm in 303 Doe Library. Please take special note of the new meeting location in Doe Library.
Thank you to everyone on the Library’s staff who has served on the Technical Services Council over these past many years. And thanks to those who begin service on the Cataloging & Metadata Council. Your participation and contributions are greatly appreciated.
