Catalogue and Index – Call for Papers

The next issue of C&I will focus on the following theme: 186 (March): The future of cataloguing

What do you think the future of cataloguing is shaping up to be? What do you want it to include?  Is MARC dead? How do you view Bibframe? How do you get the best out of your discovery layer? Who will perform cataloguing tasks in your institution, is temping the way forward?

We all have many questions about the future of cataloguing (and perhaps our own jobs), this issue is the opportunity to explore some of these areas.  We welcome papers on all of the topics mentioned, and anything else that falls within the theme.  Papers should be submitted by the end of February.

Please contact the editors (Karen Pierce: and Deborah Lee: if you have any queries, or if you want to offer a paper that does not fit into the theme mentioned.  We are always happy to consider papers on topics unrelated to an issue’s theme, especially if it is the result of some research you have conducted, or a project you have been involved in.  Papers can be up to 2,000 words, and we are happy to include a selection of images.  Please check our guidance for contributors:
