Bicentennial Conference on Bibliographic Control for the New Millennium: confronting the challenges of networked resoures and the Web

Abstract: Review by Roy Tennant:

Washington, DC: The Library of Congress (November 15-17, 2000) (http://lcweb.loc.gov/catdir/bibcontrol/conference.html). - Anyone interested in library bibliographic control may find this set of discussion papers, presentations, and responses interesting. Participants included such cataloging and metadata luminaries as Michael Gorman, Clifford Lynch, Priscilla Caplan, William Moen, Martin Dillon, and Caroline Arms, among others. The complete proceedings are online, including the reactions of assigned commentators to certain presentations. Recommendations from "topical discussion groups" are also available, but are somewhat disappointing in depth and scope -- no doubt because of the limited time allowed to address the topics. Although overall I found it to be more complacent ("search engines/dot coms need us" was one plaint -- no matter that they couldn''t care less) than is warranted in these times of bibliographic upheaval, there are useful papers, presentations, and comments here
