The Once & Future Catalog
October 23-24, 2008
Menucha Retreat and Conference Center, Corbett, Oregon
The library catalog is in a state of transition, as new products have emerged to revolutionize the patron’s experience in using this key finding tool for our collections. We will learn from libraries across the country that have led the way in transforming their library catalogs, as well as librarians from our region who can share their experience with local next generation catalog options. Please join your colleagues for two days of interesting discussion, beautiful scenery, and great company.
