From the Editor

Marcia Barrett

I am happy to announce that Yoko Kudo, Metadata & Media Cataloging Librarian at the University of California, Riverside Libraries, will be the new “News & Announcements” Column Editor for the OLAC newsletter. Although Yoko’s term won’t begin until the March issue of the newsletter, there are a number of news items in this issue.

Are you interested in becoming more involved in OLAC? There are multiple opportunities! OLAC is seeking nominations for the offices of Treasurer/Membership Coordinator and Vice President/President-Elect. We are also calling for nominations for the Nancy B. Olson Award and applications for the OLAC Research Grant. Finally, CAPC has vacancies for both interns and full members.

There are several important announcements in the President’s Column this issue, so don’t miss that, or reports from other OLAC officers and liaisons. Our last Nancy B. Olson Award recipient, Heidi Frank, is the focus of the “In the Spotlight” column. This issue contains a review of Cataloging Digital Cultural Objects: Analysis, Discovery, and Retrieval as well as Jay Weitz’s beloved “Questions and Answers” column.
