The public papers of governor Martha Layne Collins, 1983-1987 / Elizabeth Duffy Fraas, editor. (OCLC #884916739)
If you are cataloging a digitized copy of a print book, you can use the OCLC macro OCLC!GenerateERecord while viewing a print record to create a workform with the same information, edited somewhat to indicate that it is an ebook. You’ll still have to do some editing, but it is a good start!

Ahh, this is useful! I don’t do many ebook records, but there is digitization looming in my future, I think.

The University of California’s English Broadside Ballad Archive is also a fantastic project, with a dedicated team making previously hard to find (on microfiche or in archive) broadsides available to everyone, and transcribed to modern eyes and ears.  Amazing.  What we have online is amazing.

Digital Cultural Heritage DC #DCHDC

diebrarian:

Michele Casto and Lauren Algee of the DC Public Library will discuss the establishment of the DC Punk Archive in DCPL Special Collections, including community outreach, coordinating volunteers, digitization and plans for a web portal. Project collaborator and documentary filmmaker James Schneider will join them to discuss how preservation issues encountered during the making of Punk the Capital led to a partnership with the library.

Who in DC/MD/VA wants to hear about the DC Punk Archive at DCPL?

I know you do. So come have a drink with me on Thursday and let’s hear these fantastic ladies talk about their project. Come on. Half price quesadillas. 

I am going to try to go to this! (And yes, I say this every month and always chicken out.)
