Cataloging today can be a challenge. Standards are changing. Library users need immediate access. Rumors and realities of the semantic web arise in daily conversations. Catalogers must still provide metadata. Are new catalogers prepared to meet these challenges? Can small libraries adjust quickly to the rapid changes occurring? How do we provide metadata for users in the shifting cataloging landscape? One strategy to address the challenges of the changes in cataloging is through mentoring. This conversation will seek to determine how our collective knowledge can be leveraged through mentoring to tackle cataloging challenges today and tomorrow.
