Webcast - The Future of Cataloging & Librarianship
Deanna Marcum was the speaker for this webcast. You know, some of these webcasts are really interesting (the one on the technology of copyright was a lot more interesting and listenable than I was expecting - I might listen to it again sometime, it was that good). This wasn't really one of those. It required more attention than I was willing and able to give (seeing as how I listen to these while cataloging), but it basically boiled down to "cataloging in a new environment of digital materials and search engines" and "even though libraries are better, and students may know this, students still prefer Google because it's easier."
