Join us for a roundtable panel where we will be discussing the similarities/differences between metadata librarians and traditional catalogers. Topics of discussion will include: metadata job functions-do they vary from institution to institution?; metadata as opposed to cataloging; can good catalogers be just as efficient metadata creators? (are these skills transferable?).

Panelists: Corey Harper, Metadata Librarian, NYU; Melanie Wacker, Metadata Coordinator, Columbia; and Mark Sandford, Special Formats Cataloger, William Paterson University Library (NJ)
