UC Davis library to lead transformation of cataloging

“The University of California, Davis, will lead the way for research libraries to transform how they catalog their collections to improve how online researchers can find and use them, thanks to a half-million dollar grant. The University Library of UC Davis was awarded a $493,000 grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services and is one of only 41 libraries in the country this year to receive the institute’s National Leadership Grant, a program that supports projects to improve professional practice beyond the institution receiving the grant. The two-year project — seeking to modernize what is, for libraries, as complex as air traffic control systems — will create a roadmap for libraries for strategic planning and investments in new software, standards and expertise.” (via UC Davis News & Information)
