Yes, the end is near, the end of the library catalog– everything’s online now and despairing catalogers the world over rend their garments. But you want to laugh through your tears, don’t you?
“There’s No Catalog Like No Catalog,” the Ultimate Debate hosted by LITA‘s Internet Resources and Services Interest Group at this year’s American Library Association annual conference, is an informed discussion of the OPAC‘s future, and also a hoot. Panelists were Roy Tennant, Karen Coyle, Joseph Janes, and Karen Schneider.
Audio of the debate is available here.
