Good news + updates on friends’ projects

It’s a good day for real librarians and libraries!

Good news! My compatriot Colin Higgins — a librarian at Cambridge and blogger of Libraries at the Movies — has written a cataloging book, Cataloging and Managing Film & Video Collections: A Guide to using RDA and MARC21, newly published by ALA Editions. Last year, Colin had asked me to provide editing feedback on the first half of his manuscript, and I was glad to do so. Even more so because he wrote a book about cataloging, and I’m no cataloger. (But I think that’s exactly why he asked for my feedback — if I could understand it, surely a cataloger would! 😉 )

So in all its newly published glory, here is Cataloging and Managing Film & Video Collections: A Guide to using RDA and MARC21 by my blogger friend and reel librarian compatriot Colin Higgins. You can view more info and pricing info here at the ALA Store.

Congratulations, Colin!

And when I went to view the press release about Colin’s new book, lo and behold did I spy a familiar name listed as the book’s book’s contact and marketing coordinator:  Rob Christopher! The same Rob Christopher as the author of Queue Tips: Discovering Your Next Great Movie, which I reviewed last year? The same Rob Christopher whose Kickstarter campaign to finish “Pause of the Clock,” a film he shot 20 years ago, I featured a couple of weeks ago on this blog? It is a small world after all! And I am pleased to let everyone know that Rob’s Kickstarter campaign goal was successfully funded (as a contributor, I’ve been getting updates about the project’s progress).

Congratulations, Rob!
