Cornell University Law Library
The meeting of the Processing Issues Group is set for Sunday, July 16, from 7:30 to 9:00 a.m. The group was formed in 1992 to discuss cataloging and acquisitions issues relating to foreign and international materials. In 1992/93 we completed a survey of libraries with collections of materials from international organizations to assist Jolande Goldberg (Library of Congress) in developing the new class schedules. Last year we heard a report from Jolande about the new cataloger's desktop and also proposed a new column on technical processing for the FCIL Newsletter. We are a growing interest group with plenty of opportunities for new members to get involved.

CWRU Law School
This year we will be discussing the addition of course syllabi to the CWRU Law School World Wide Web server and pathfinders to Washburn University Law School's Web server. We will also be examining the role of the Web in teaching FCIL research, trading war stories and ideas for using these resources, and discussing what other resources we should be putting on the Web next, and who should do it.
We will also be discussing the uses of Internet resources generally in teaching foreign, comparative, and international legal research. Please bring twenty copies of your most recent syllabus or twenty copies of a research exercise using Internet for exchange and questions or comments for discussion of this valuable and popular resource.
Finally, we will be discussing problems in teaching the Internet, such as lack of equipment or outdated equipment, and lack of appropriate classroom space.

Georgetown University Law Library
The International Issues Group will be meeting on Sunday, July 16, 1995, from 3:50 to 4:35 p.m. and would like to encourage interested parties to attend our meeting. Jolande Goldberg of the Library of Congress will make a brief presentation on the draft LC schedules for International Relations and Diplomacy. She would like to encourage our input and discussion regarding materials that are presently slated for inclusion in the International Relations and Diplomacy JZ class, but currently reside in classes D and F (Political History). There will be an opportunity to discuss IGO documentation in the new JZ schedule as well (UN, OAS, and EC).
We hope to see you there.
