Greene was asked to chair meeting, as Inna Gudanyets (Stanford) was not able to attend.
Minutes from the last meeting were approved.
Thurston spoke on the cataloging changes under discussion for the next revision of AACR2R. A discussion can be found at www.nlc-bnc/jsc/index.htm
Cooperative cataloging: Thurston spoke on a cooperative cataloging project for Latin American studies. This project divided cataloging by region in order to clean up backlogs.
Old business: Should the Slavic directory of librarians with special language skills become a part of Slavlibs? Greene will contact Allan Urbanic to broach this issue.
The group discussed the idea of having a separate listserv for Slavic cataloging. It was agreed that individuals should use Slavlibs more as a forum for questions.
Meeting adjourned at 3:00 P.M.
