Marsha Seamans Awarded KLA Academic Library Section's Professional Development Grant:

Marsha Seamans, Director of Access Records Management, has been awarded the 2012 Professional Development Grant from the Kentucky Library Association Academic Library Section. Marsha will be conducting research on managing academic library cataloging departments in today’s environment.  Cataloging departments are experiencing significant changes with the implementation of RDA (Resources Description and Access) expected in 2013, budget cuts that are impacting staffing and workflow, the proliferation of digital/online resources, and the emphasis on providing access to hidden collections.  The grant will support attendance at the 2012 Online Audiovisual Cataloger (OLAC) preconference “Managing Cataloging Departments, or, the Accidental Leader.”
