If the OLA Technical Services Round Table and the WLA Collection Development & Technical Services Interest Group were to co-sponsor a preconference, possibly with out-of-state presenters, at the joint WLA/OLA conference in April, which of the following topics would most interest you?  Would you be likely to attend?

1.       "Moving beyond MARC" - Explore the possibilities for working with bibliographic data outside of MARC, including exposure to a couple tools to help us move beyond a MARC environment: the eXtensible Catalog<http://www.extensiblecatalog.org/> and RIMMF<http://www.marcofquality.com/rimmf/doku.php?id=rimmf>.

2.       "Rudimentary RDA" - Learn about the basics of RDA (Resource Description & Access): what is it, why do we need it, how is it different.

3.       "RDA and Authority Work" - Learn about changes to authority records as constructed under RDA and how to use the new elements.

Feel free to share with other library staff in Washington and Oregon.  Please respond with any preferences to heather.pitts at state.or.us<mailto:heather.pitts at state.or.us> by 5 pm on Thursday (9/13).
