Technology continues to affect every aspect of our lives, from the way we communicate to the way we listen to music, and from the way we pay for groceries to the way we access library materials. As a result of technology’s influence, many organizations have begun to rethink their operations.

The Library of Congress recently began an initiative to reassess its approach to bibliographic records. As part of the process, the American Library Association has tapped several library professionals from around the country to serve on a steering committee for this process.

Diane Dates Casey, Dean of Library Services and Academic Computing at Governors State University, was named to a position on the steering committee. The group will plan the national meeting to discuss the Library of Congress’ future bibliographic structure.
