 The next Media Committee meeting will be taking place Tuesday, April 10th, 10am – 12pm, at Suffolk Cooperative Library System.  Coffee and networking at 9:30am.  The topic of discussion will be cataloging Media concerns.

We’ll be talking about all kinds of media issues; DVDs and blu ray combos, audiobooks, vinyl, TV series, box sets, video games, media bib records, and so much more!  If you’re involved with copy cataloging, original cataloging, processing, or troubleshooting your library’s media collection don’t miss out on this roundtable discussion.  Have an issue with a new media collection at your library?  This is a great opportunity to talk it out with other libraries that might be dealing with the same problems.
