Kia ora koutou,

CatSIG is pleased to open registrations for our second Professional Development Day for Cataloguers on the 16th August at the National Library in Wellington, and we’d love you to join us! This year we’re also trying something new and will be livestreaming the day so if you can’t physically travel to Wellington you will be able to attend virtually.

Our program will focus on the upcoming changes to RDA and because several members of the RDA Steering Committee (RSC) will be travelling to IFLA in Kuala Lumpur, we’ve been able to tempt them to travel a little further to speak to us. They will be sharing their expertise and experience with the IFLA Library Reference Model, Aggregates and Serials and the changes to the RDA Toolkit.

Where: National Library of New Zealand, Wellington
When: Thursday 16th August 2018, 8.30-4.30
In person: $45 CatSIG, $50 LIANZA, $55 non member

Live stream: $40 CatSIG, $45 LIANZA, $50 non member

Recording access for 12 months (if you haven't already registered to attend in person or the live stream) $35 CatSIG, $40 LIANZA, $45 non member

Morning and afternoon tea will be provided.

To register: https://db.lianza.org.nz/database/event-calendar/catsig-professional-development-day/details/48

Organisations can either do a bulk registration for their staff, or staff can register themselves & have the invoice addressed to the organisation.

Questions, feedback, comments: catsigcommittee at gmail.com<mailto:catsigcommittee at gmail.com>
