Collaborative e-collection management: CEAL cooperative cataloging project for e-collections presented by Bie-Hwa Ma (UCSD) 

With the longstanding issues of poor metadata provided by vendors, users often have difficulties in finding e-resources which are crucial for research. The CEAL cooperative cataloging project for e-collections will adopt a new strategy by using the OCLC WorldShare Collection Manager for the e-collection data creation and management. When the entire e-collection is fully cataloged, each institute can download the records of each e-collection to its ILS.

10:50-11:05 am


Automated acquisitions & collaborative project presented by Shi Deng (UCSD) and Sarah Elman (Columbia) 

The strategies of batch loading, shelf-ready services and collaborative projects have been used to expedite processing and control backlog. Case studies will be presented in this session.
