"Future of Cataloging" (Marcum)

Interesting speech by Deanna Marcum, addressing EBSCO Leadership Seminar on "The Future of Cataloging". Marcum is Associate Librarian for Library Services at the Library of Congress. Points out that LC spends $40 million per year on cataloging, and wonders whether the efforts will continue to be worth while in the age of full-text online via Google search engine.

See also Barbara Tillet's 2004 lecture on "Cataloging for the Future" and Dale Flecker's January 2005 presentation on " OPACs and Our Changing Environment".
