Hard to believe, but ALA Midwinter is not even a week away! The Dewey Breakfast/Update will be held on Saturday, 25 January, 7:00–8:30 a.m., Pennsylvania Convention Center, Room 120 C. (Register here.)
The program will feature presentations on new WebDewey features (like the upcoming notification feature, which will help keep users informed about classification updates); a guest presentation by Merrilee Proffitt about DDC projects currently underway at OCLC Programs and Research (like the Dewey Graph project); and Cookbook Finder, a works-based application that provides access to thousands of cookbooks and other works about food described in library records derived in part from Dewey data in Classify. We also hope that there will be some time for brainstorming and discussion; bring your pressing Dewey questions! The ALCTS Public Libraries Technical Services Interest Group will meet in the same room 8:30–10:00 a.m. directly following the Dewey Update Breakfast.
