D: RDA for the Non-Cataloger
This presentation will explain the changes that came about with the
implementation of new cataloging standards and guidelines, Resource
Description and Access (RDA). The presentation will be low-key and nontechnical and will go over what library staff who do not work in cataloging

called upon to explain what these changes will mean to patrons and noncataloging staff to the Council of Librarians, the Catalogers' Group, and to
library staff.
11:45 am-1:00 pm
Buffet Lunch (included)
1:00-2:00 pm
Afternoon Keynote Speaker – Laura Van Wormer, author and ebook publisher
eBooks in the Wild, Wild West: Pioneers, outlaws, shoot-outs and
sheriffs on the digital frontier of reading -- an overview of
authors, publishers, libraries, readers and distributors in 2013
Laura Van Wormer worked in independent bookstores through high school
and college and graduated from the Newhouse School of Communications
at Syracuse University. She joined Doubleday as secretary to the Editor-inChief and worked her way up to editor before leaving to pursue her own
writing career, which began with creating tie-in books for the TV shows
Dynasty, Dallas and Knots Landing until she published her first novel,
RIVERSIDE DRIVE, and subsequently was a full-time novelist for 13 more
books.
When her novels were being digitized in 2010 Laura couldn’t help but
notice that the eBook system was largely being designed by people who
did not have a scintilla of experience in book publishing. The ensuing
rush of book publishers to catch up with techno-merchandizers created a
combative marketplace, particularly around libraries, and authors were
suffering, until a revolt broke out, starting a trend toward a burgeoning
literary culture without editors or curation (yikes!). In 2011 Laura formed
a partnership with long-time friends, each a leading entrepreneur in his or
her field—publishing, technology, marketing, Wall Street—and founded
Author & Company, a digital publishing house, to learn from the inside out
how eBook publishing practices could be improved. A New York
subsidiary company soon spun off, called Authoropolis, which is an online
retailer of eBooks which the company is using, in conjunction with its
customers, as a laboratory to create a more traditional bookstore
experience online, but also to make the best use of the latest technology
for individual title discovery.

2:10-3:10 pm
Breakout Session II (choose one)
A: DDA? PDA? What Are Libraries Up To?!
Are you curious about the popularity of Demand-Driven/Patron-Driven
Acquisitions in academic libraries? This access and purchasing model has
been around for several years but continues to evolve as individual
libraries and consortia request new options and new providers and
publishers enter the ring. Come to this session for an overview about this
collection development model; learn why and how it’s being used in some
of Connecticut’s academic libraries; its many options, benefits and
potential issues associated with it. Presented by Lorraine Huddy, the
CTW Librarian for Collaborative Projects; she has worked with the CTW
Library Consortium (Connecticut-Trinity-Wesleyan) since January
2008. The CTW Libraries implemented their first PDA pilot with Coutts and
MyiLibrary in January 2010, set up another DDA program with YBP and
EBL in September 2012, and are in the process of revamping their
PDA/DDA program for the third time in as many years. Lorri will discuss
CTW’s set-ups and experiences as well as those of colleagues across the
country to provide a thorough look at this unique option.
B: How to Better Serve Your Genealogy Patrons: Some Tips for
