Date: April 27, 2022 3–4 p.m.
Location: virtual meeting via Zoom

Co-Chairs: Trina Grover (Toronto Metropolitan University) and Kelly Buehler (Toronto Public Library)

We did not take attendance.


  1. Call for Co-Chairs for 2023-2024, please consider volunteering to coordinate and host our meetings for the coming year.  As a volunteer-run group we rely on each other to take on this responsibility, which is not onerous, in order to give us space to gather and share.
  2. RDA training materials developed for the workshop at OLA 2023 are now available at https://ocats.ca


Members of the CFLA Cataloguing Committee were present to talk about the new Cataloguing Code of Ethics released in January 2021. The Committee was seeking feedback from the Library community so it can consider recommending that the CFLA-FCAB Board of Directors officially endorse the Code.

Welcome and thanks to the members of the CFLA Cataloguing Committee:

Beth Shoemaker, Head, Bibliographic Services, Victoria University Libraries, University of Toronto
