As previously announced, the Dewey Update Breakfast and ALCTS Public Libraries Technical Services Interest Group will be held at ALA on Saturday, June 25, 7:00-10:00 AM. ALA has announced that a memorial event for the Pulse shooting victims will be held from 8:00-8:30 AM that morning. Therefore, we will suspend our meeting from 7:45-8:40 AM to allow attendees to attend the memorial event. To allow for this change, the presentations will start earlier than usual, beginning at 7:00 AM, while we enjoy breakfast together.
Come hear presentations by Julianne Beall and Alex Kyrios, Dewey editorial team members, on important features in WebDewey and significant schedule changes approved at the recent DDC Editorial Policy Committee meeting, respectively, preceding the memorial service. Return after the memorial service to hear Caroline Saccucci, head of the CIP and Dewey Program at the Library of Congress, talk about an expansion of LC's AutoDewey program for sports biographies. The ALCTS Public Libraries Technical Services Interest Group will then continue.
