Welcome to BCCATS

The Cataloguing and Technical Services Interest Group (BCCATS) is for anyone interested in cataloguing or technical services. We meet twice a year, and have the occasional discussion on our email list. We also offer workshops and present sessions at the annual BCLA conference.

Welcome to the Cataloguing and Technical Services (BCCATS) Interest Group!

The Cataloguing and Technical Services Interest Group (BCCATS) is an association of Technical Services people working in public, academic, schools and special libraries.  An interest group of library managers, librarians, library assistants and technicians, BCCATS maintains a busy listserv for collaboration of ourselves and our units around the province.

We meet twice a year and welcome anyone working in libraries in BC, students in the library profession or guests inquiring through our Chair or Secretary.

BCCATS also offers professionally relevant workshops and sessions at the annual BCLA conference or at other library events as they occur across the province.
