Talking about Code Year

It’s really weird to watch yourself talk. And listen to yourself. Oh boy.

Anyway, here’s a link to Andromeda Yelton and I talking about the Code Year phenomenon and what we’ve got going on:

Watch. And then come join us!! Thanks to Tina Coleman for posting her video and sharing it. πŸ™‚

We are working on making the ALA Interest Group a joint LITA/ALCTS venture. There are far too many catalogers involved fro ALCTS to not participate! Yay for dialogue between catalogers and coders!

About slmcdanold

I’m learning to laugh at myself on a daily basis. I’m a librarian (cataloger) and I love it. My job involves all things metadata related in any and all formats. I have been known to cause a ruckus when necessary (aka troublesome cataloger) and make no apologies for it. I have a passion for continuing education and teaching. I’m a newbie coder (still learning). I like to cook. I’m a fan of rugby (go Australian Wallabies!) and ice hockey (go Detroit Red Wings!). I’m car-free and bike/walk a lot. I’m learning to love running one stride at a time. I own (and love) a very mouthy cat with a punk attitude and a slightly neurotic rescue mutt.

One Response to Talking about Code Year

  1. I'm sincerely excited about ALCTS/LITA collaboration as well, not to mention CodeYear….alas, in an entire lifetime of being a girl, I have never coveted an accessory as much as I want Shana's lanyard (excepting, maybe, the sort of tacky plastic charm necklaces popular with American third graders in the early 80's).
