At the beginning of September 2010 AURA participated at the NCB College in Battle Creek, MI, USA at the invitation of DLIS. Our team gave there a presentation of the smart codification tool MC CATALOGUE together with its sophisticated module package MCC eOTD. After that, live demonstration of many MC CATALOGUE modules was given.
The students worked with MC CATALOGUE during the practical hands-on session and successfully codified real items of supply. They highly appreciated rich and comprehensive MC CATALOGUE functionality, and especially the smart web-based interface and powerful search functions. The students made sure that codification with MC CATALOGUE is easy and user friendly, and it allowed completing item identification in a short time even without any special training.
A very interesting and useful event for AURA team was meeting with the DLIS team in their building Hart-Dole-Inouye Federal Center. It was very nice to meet there people that they knew each other only from email communication and teleconferences. The progress in FIIG conversion to the ISO 22745 format and a new experience with eOTD and XML data exchange format were discussed.
