Cataloging and Metadata Common Interest Group (CAMCIG)

Years active: 2006-2013

NOTE: Beginning July 2013, the University of California Libraries launched a revised advisory structure. The groups within the previous structure are no longer active, including this group. See UC Libraries Advisory Structure (UCLAS) for information about the current structure.

Group Description

The Cataloging and Metadata Common Interest Group (CAMCIG) advised and assisted the Heads of Technical Services (HOTS) wherever necessary to ensure the most effective outcomes regarding planning and processing in UC Libraries cataloging and metadata services. Reporting regularly to HOTS, the Group advised HOTS on the need for system- wide discussion, communication and coordination on particular issues. The Group researched and made recommendations on the development of cataloging and metadata services that ensure effective and timely access to collections in all formats. Where appropriate, CAMCIG served as a resource on cataloging and metadata issues for other system-wide groups.
