---Call for papers and posters is closing on Friday 15th November---

The value of cataloguing and “real” library data is a crucial issue in a time when the growing number of electronic publications and some significant developments in the field of digital libraries are changing the scenario in which traditional libraries act by bringing into question the goals of the services they provide.

General areas of interests include, but are not limited to, the following topics:

Working with new standards
Cataloguing in the semantic web
MARC vs. non MARC
RDA: pros and cons, opportunities and disadvantages
Describing secondary digital resources
Controlled vocabularies vs. tagging
Bibliographic data integrity (single catalogue, national systems)

Working together
Organising authority data management
Cooperating with publishers and e-commerce agents
Libraries and educational programmes
One record, many users. Many producers, one record
ALM: innovative models and tools for cooperation
Cooperation among academic library systems: organisational models and achievements

New challenges for cataloguers / data managers (and for catalogues / data storage systems)
Meta-cataloguing, federated search, what else?
Implementing a new standard: organisational issues, costs, priorities, training
Speaking to / with users. Working for / with users
Learning from use: the functions of data mining
Faceted search
Bridging resources
Opacs for children
Are online publications at risk of opacity?

Professional education for cataloguers
Learning to link resources
Digital curation
New roles and profiles for libraries
Multimedia, multiculturalism, multidomain
Managing bibliographic systems and efficient and intelligible / intuitive interfaces
Creating professional (self)training resources

New practices in cataloguing
Metadata and traditional cataloguing
From shared / derived cataloguers to metadata creators
Promoting reading through cataloguing
Describing and indexing fiction
Semantic interoperability
Describing the virtual

· Position papers presenting opinions on some aspect of practice, or describing work that is still in progress, but sufficiently mature to warrant attention

· Experiences and case studies specifying requirements, challenges or opportunities

· Best practices
