The Technical Services Round Table of the Oregon Library Association will hold its annual business meeting on April 26 from 1:15 pm-2:15 pm in the Pine room at the Hilton Vancouver.

TSRT will also have an informal lunch at the Thai Orchid at 12:00 pm before the business meeting. If you would like to join us, please RSVP to Heather Pitts at heather.pitts at state.or.us<mailto:heather.pitts at state.or.us> by Thursday, April 25 so the restaurant has time to plan a table layout.

TSRT is pleased to sponsor two conference sessions and a preconference this year. Please consider joining us for these sessions:

Thu. 4/25/13, 2:15-3:30 pm
RDA for Copy Catalogers
This session provides a basic orientation to Resource Description and Access (RDA) for copy catalogers and gives them tools to interpret records in WorldCat. The focus will be on identifying RDA records and understanding the new fields and practices that differ from AACR2 so that copy catalogers can select bibliographic records and edit them appropriately. Examples will include RDA records and "hybrid" records in various formats, with an emphasis on resources collected by public libraries. Integrated library systems' capabilities for managing RDA data will be discussed at a general level.
Speakers: Lori Robare and Jean Peick
Sponsors: OLA TSRT and WLA CATS

Fri. 4/26/13, 10:30-11:45 am
New ILS Directions: Open Source Options and Consortial Implementation
Part 1 focuses on why libraries are turning to open source ILS options: opportunity for flexibility, control over library data, and (upfront) cost savings. Hear stories about experiences with Evergreen and Koha, and learn about issues diverse libraries faced and lessons they learned. If you are considering an open source ILS, what do you need to know and how should you prepare to research, choose, and implement one? Part 2 describes the Orbis Cascade Alliance's ambitious project to implement a shared ILS for its 37 academic member institutions in Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. How will the shared ILS strengthen collaboration and improve efficiency and service? Learn how four cohorts of member libraries will implement the new system between June 2013 and January 2015.
Speakers: Part 1: Diedre Conkling, Beth Longwell, Jessica Tobin, Buzzy Nielsen, and Jed Moffitt; Part 2: Xan Arch and Susan Hinken
