Makeup and Charge

The Cataloging Standing Group (CSG) is a standing group that works under the auspices of the Alliance Shared Content and Technical Services (SCTS) Team. It is composed of staff from Alliance member libraries with expertise and interest in cataloging and metadata management. The group also includes the Program Manager for Technical Services. The charge of the CSG includes:

  • Review and recommend cataloging policy for the Alliance. Create training outlines and documentation for best practices.
  • Based on the priorities identified by the group, tasks could include reviewing past task group reports and determining a plan. Suggestions include reviewing CONSER funnel pilot, reviewing MARCIVE loading, looking at CZ record quality, implementing Primo genre/form recommendations, and reviewing the possibility of a PCC bib funnel.
