The Montana State Library's Hot Spot Lending Program expanded patron access to the internet via hot spots, both in and out of the Montana Shared Catalog (MSC); however, it's presented cataloging challenges for staff. Come learn the MSC recommendations for cataloging hot spots to best support patron discovery and circulation.

Keiley McGregor works for the State Library as Trainer to the Montana Shared Catalog (MSC) consortium. She enjoys trail running slowly, thrifting, and puzzles of all kinds.

Melody Karle works as a System Administrator for the Montana Shared Catalog (MSC) consortium at the Montana State Library. She has previously worked in both public and academic libraries, and spends her free time fostering kittens, baking, gardening, and playing competitive Scrabble.
