Behind the scenes at Users and Uses

I caught Deanna Marcum’s squirrelly talk at the De Lange Conference
last week, wherein she touched upon the upcoming Users and Uses Meeting of the Working Group on the Future of Bibliographic Control. There’s a lot to digest about the group, its makeup, and its mission, as well as tons to contemplate on what their decisions will mean for everyone in the library world. (Ref folks, info literacy folks, archivists, I’m talking to you!) There’s also a lot to sound off about, but very little information to come out of the group. Insider Karen Coyle has several blog posts up with her notes and insights, and is contributing to the futurelib wiki. Yay for this step towards transparency. It’s long overdue.
