Catalogue & Index call for papers – Issue 200 (September 2020)
In January 1966 the first issue of Catalogue & Index was published, a year after the inauguration of the Library Association Cataloguing and Indexing Group. In September of this year we will reach issue number 200 and thought it a worthy achievement to celebrate. We are inviting people to not only look back over 54 years of cataloguing history and to comment on the innovations and leaps forward that have occurred but also to look forward to see where our profession is heading. We are open to a wide selection of topics for this issue. What is important to you in the coming years? What has been of benefit to you? If you have been working with metadata for a while what milestones have there been on your journey. This issue will celebrate history, but is also keen to look forward to what might be achieved in the future.
The deadline for this issue is 31st August. Please contact the editors (Karen Pierce: PierceKF@Cardiff.ac.uk and Philip Keates: P.Keates@kingston.ac.uk) with proposed papers, 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. We encourage people from all sectors to contribute, and actively welcome international contributions as well. Papers can be up to 2,000 words, and we are happy to include a selection of images.
