From the "Cataloging Futures" blog.

So after 3-4 years of talking about the future of cataloging--Where are we? That's the question I'm asking myself before next week's Palinet symposium on the future of cataloging.

Full blog entry here.

I followed the link at the "Cataloging Futures" blog to the Palinet symposium and there was this blurb about Karen Calhoun, who is the keynote speaker.

Karen Calhoun joined OCLC in May 2007 as Vice President, WorldCat & Metadata Services, to chart the future of OCLC's cataloging services and extend WorldCat’s global reach. From 1996 to April 2007, Ms. Calhoun served in leadership positions at Cornell University Library, where she penned the infamous "Calhoun report" on the future of the catalog.

Here is a link to the Calhoun report.
