ALCTS webinar: E-Books via the Cataloging in Publication Program

Date: Wednesday, October 21, 2015

All webinars are one hour in length and begin at 11am Pacific, noon

Description: The Cataloging in Publication (CIP) Program is now accepting

E-Books Program, including the application process, publisher
participation, e-book metadata creation, and ingestion of the e-books into
the Library’s Content Transfer System to add to the Library’s collections.

Who should attend? Metadata librarians and e-resources librarians of all
types of libraries.
