E-Book Cataloging Using a Shared Mailbox

ALCTS webinar: E-Book Cataloging Using a Shared Mailbox

This webinar is one of the six-part “Working with Continuing Resources” webinar series

Date: Monday, March 16, 2015
All webinars are one hour in length and begin at 11am Pacific, noon Mountain, 1pm Central, and 2pm Eastern time.

Description: Acquiring and cataloging e-books received as firm orders presents a unique challenge to librarians accustomed to print materials, who struggle to manage an invisible backlog and workflow, and the attendant difficulties with tracking, communicating between departments, and notifying users when the materials are available to them. This session will show participants how to plan and create a workflow for processing these orders using a shared mailbox.

Learning outcomes: Participants will be able to plan and create a workflow applicable to their own environment.

Who should attend? Technical services librarians who are responsible for the management of an e-book workflow, whether in acquisitions or cataloging.

Presenter: Nancy Mitchell Poehlmann has been a cataloging manager since 1990. She has presented sessions on various cataloging and management topics at the American Library Association Midwinter and Annual conferences, the SUNY Librarians Association conference, and the Association of American Law Libraries annual conference. She is currently Head of the Cataloging Services Department at the University at Albany, State University of New York.
