Deep Dive: FCIL Basics for Metadata Professionals: Collaborating to Ensure Access to Foreign and International Legal Materials (H1)

Date/Time: Tuesday, July 17, 2018: 10:00 AM – 12:30 PM
Speakers: George Prager, NYU Law Library; Ajaye Bloomstone, LSU Law Library; Susan Gualtier, University of Pennsylvania Law School Library; Loyita M. Worley, Reed Smith LLP, UK

This program will help non-FCIL metadata professionals develop familiarity with the differences between foreign law, international law, and comparative law. Additionally, participants will better understand legal terminology and world legal systems, translation issues and tools, performing subject analysis in foreign languages, useful resources such as Int-law, FCIL forums, and the IALL listserv, besides developing a network of colleagues. Non-cataloging FCIL librarians will become more informed about how original description of foreign resources is handled and the analysis involved. Enhanced collaboration and communication between these two groups should result in processing efficiencies for and improving access to FCIL materials.

This program is jointly sponsored by the FCIL-SIS and TS-SIS.

NOTE: Due to the structure of this program it was not recorded. However, the program’s supplemental materials are available.
