Welcome to CatCode!

Page history last edited by byoose 9 years, 3 months ago

This wiki is to help support dialogue between catalogers/metadata folks and coders in the library world.


If you are interested in joining the conversation, please ask to join the wiki and add you name to the participants list.


Additionally, there is a Twitter list: Catcode. Please send a message to @slmcdanold to have yourself added to the list.


Looking for resources? Check out our Resources page. Feel free to add to it as you find things!

Looking for support groups in your area? Check out our Support Groups page. Please add your local groups to the list!

Looking for examples of what you can do with code in libraries/cataloging? Check out the Cataloguing Code Examples folder.


Q&A space: LibCatCode (site is no longer active)

StackExchange space (download questions, but site is no longer active): Libraries and Information Science

Q: So, is the wiki and twitter list going to be the only things we're using for this?


A: Nope! For those of you who want to dive into a more real-time chat environment to chat with like-minded folks, we're also offering a IRC channel, #catcode. If you have an IRC client or have an IM program like Pidgin, you can get on #catcode through the chat.freenode.net server.


Don't have an IRC client? No worries; just point your browser to http://webchat.freenode.net/, and enter the channel name #catcode, your nickname, and you're set. This is probably the best way to get in if your institution is picky about what is installed on your computer or limits IRC traffic.

Can we consider moving the Resources link above the fold? It seems pretty valuable and it's a bit buried right now.

And done.
