Dear Librarian/Information Officer:

Subject: 18th MARC21 Workshop Reloaded

Electronic Information Solutions, Inc. (EISI), in cooperation with the Saint Louis University, Baguio City is pleased to invite you to the 18th Machine Readable Cataloging (MARC21) Workshop on June 30 to July 01, 2011, Thursday and Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. at the 3/F Audio Visual Room, Msgr. Charles Vath Library Building, Saint Louis University, A. Bonifacio St., Baguio City

We believe quality data is essential to a successful library automation project. We also believe that if today’s cataloging activities are geared towards the production of machine-readable records, a lot of savings can be realized when the library finally decides to automate. As part of our commitment to fully equip librarians and information professionals with skills and techniques needed to automate their libraries, we have developed a two-day curriculum to introduce librarians to MARC21 so they will be able to produce quality records suitable for library automation.

Our new MARC21 Workshop Reloaded series includes two days of intensive training. The first day features MARC21 Bibliographic Format and is the same as our previous one-day MARC21 Workshop series. The second day includes a new set of topics on the MARC21 Authority Format. It also includes an overview of RDA (Resource Description and Access), a new standard that will be the successor of AACR2. This said workshop is NOW an accredited CPE provider.

Workshop fee including lunch & snacks, computer time and training materials is at P 3,500 for two days or P 1,750.00 for one day. Participants may attend for one or both days depending on their interest. Attached is the program for your reference.

Please confirm your participation on or before Friday, June 24, 2011 by sending us thru courier, e-mail or fax (632)325-0027 the attached reply slip.
