As I write this, there are just 8 tickets left for #Mashcat, the next Mashed Library event taking place on 5 July 2012 in Cambridge (
…and the first mashlib since Pancakes and Mash in Lincoln a year ago? – silly me, I forgot about #ChrisMash). Becuse of the topic and the location, this is a particularly interesting one for the CLOCK project. Mashcat is:
A mashed library event focussing on cataloguing data. For cataloguers, developers and anyone else with an interest in how library catalogue data can be created, manipulated, used and re-used by computers and software. It will be an invaluable opportunity for cataloguers, developers and others to meet and share knowledge, thoughts, and ideas. Possible topics participants could explore on the day include the principles behind the data, tools and code for working with it, and real examples of work on bibliographic data.
Mashcat is a free one day event, which is supported by DevCSI. After refreshments, the first session will start at 10am.
