You need an introduction to the modes of communication. 2. MARC: Library of Congress Did It, But Now It Must Change Cataloging changes to get patrons information quicker but challenges the traditional attributes of good cataloging. 3. How to Get OCLC To Listen To Us OCLC provides valuable services for ILL. How can we share our concerns with this powerful vendor? 4. Innovation Can Come From Us ILLiad was created at Virginia Tech, but it is only one of the exciting ideas originating in libraries. 5. Rethinking Resource Sharing: The Future of Interlibrary Loan.
