NGC – Next Generation Catalog

Interesting post from ALA TechSource Blog on the NextGen Catalog:  "The NGC movement builds on all the great work done on cataloging in the past, but for the most part refuses to think of "the catalog" as a monolithic and separate entity. Instead, one of the more interesting concepts about the NGC—not universally shared in these discussions, but increasingly gaining traction—is that the NGC is no longer a stand-alone catalog unto itself but offers sets of content and services that are malleable, portable, and intellectually related to other services we offer, such as journal articles, full-text books, and multimedia."
