It’s been very, very busy around here the past couple of weeks, and I’ve got six projects running concurrently, which means that something has to give and unfortunately, that’s what I write here. Luckily, the most time-intensive project which is a digitization grant I’m working on is due next week, and thing should slow down a bit from that point onwards. (Apologies to both my dedicated readers.)
At any rate, this article in the Nov. 1 issue of Library Journal came to me by way of Margaret Maurer, Assistant Professor and Head of Cataloging and Metadata at Kent State, and the SysAdmin of the university’s TSLibrarians listserv. It’s called "Amazing Magic Searches" and it’s an interesting (and funny) look at Library of Congress Subject heading subdivisions, written by Becky Kornegay, Heidi Buchanan, and Hiddy Morgan. And it’s not written just for catalogers, either.
