The Wellington seminar is nearly full, but there are still lots of places available at the Auckland seminar. If you are working through the process of getting approval for this, but want to make sure you have a place, please let me know as soon as possible and I will 'pencil you in', pending approval. Remember to let me know whether you're a CatSIG, or a LIANZA personal member, or whether your library is a LIANZA member.

CatSIG Professional Development Seminar, July 2007

CatSIG is pleased to announce a one day seminar with an exciting and
varied programme of speakers.

The Committee is delighted to announce that Deirdre Kiorgaard, Director,
Bibliographic Standards and Strategy, National Library of Australia and
Chair of the Joint Steering Committee for Revision of Anglo-American
Cataloguing Rules will be our key presenter.

Ms. Kiorgaard will give two presentations on the JSC's work on RDA as
well as a demonstration of how FRBR fits into the model. This will be
the only opportunity New Zealand librarians and interested parties will
have to hear about these developments before the publication of RDA in

The Committee has achieved a coup in attracting Ms. Kiorgaard whose
presentations will be of interest to a wide community and we encourage
you to attend.

Other presenters are Chris Todd who will regale us with tales from her
year in Cambodia on VSA; Leonie Hayes from the University of Auckland
will demonstrate ResearchSpace and discuss metadata, cataloguing and
repositories and Amanda Cossham from The Open Polytechnic will discuss
the rapidly growing discipline of information architecture.
