Founded in 1980, OLAC is an organization for catalogers concerned with all types of nonprint materials, including a wide range of digital resources as well as more “traditional” formats: video and sound recordings, websites, maps, multimedia, graphic materials, and realia. Through conferences, workshops, publications, and the electronic discussion list, catalogers exchange information and enjoy expert and practical advice on cataloging audiovisual resources. OLAC became an ALA affiliate in 2008.
OLAC will award a Conference Scholarship which provides funds for a member of OLAC to attend the OLAC Conference. Any personal member of OLAC who has never attended an OLAC Conference is eligible for the scholarship.
Spring has sprung early here in Tallahassee, Florida—birds are singing and azaleas are blooming. I hope this spring issue of the OLAC newsletter finds you comfortably warm even if the weather is still chilly in your little corner of the globe.
