Catalogue & Index
The bumper 200th issue of Catalogue and Index is now available on our webpages: https://cdn.ymaws.com/www.cilip.org.uk/resource/collection/0C44DCEE-84F7-4540-A5B6-716A05454B64/C&I_200.pdf
C&I has been published since 1966 and has been a witness to many momentous events in the world of metadata over the years. To this end, we thought this issue should adopt an historical slant as its theme and so we have invited past editors of C&I and past chairs of CIG (now MDG) to offer their views from their time in tenure. We also take a look back through the 200 issues to find out just what topics people have been writing about in the world of metadata for the last 54 years.
We also want to look forward (to the next 200 issues!) and feature pieces from four collaborative regionals groups operating within the UK who are discovering strengths and benefits from working together. In addition we have a research piece from Nigeria examining the challenges associated with performance appraisal systems used to assess cataloguers.
We hope you enjoy this issue and look forward to any feedback from you. December will bring our conference paper issue, and remember to look out in 2021 for our calls for papers for future editions.
