NACO and RDA: Building Authority Records with the New Cataloging Rules

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!


Sherman Clarke, Freelance and Itinerant Art Cataloger

Name authority work is an essential part of cataloging and NACO (name authority cooperative) is a means to share your authority work with the world. NACO is one of the constituent programs of the Program for Cooperative Cataloging (PCC), coordinated from the Library of Congress. The Art NACO cooperative has been in existence since 1993 and includes about a dozen libraries, some of whom are inactive. Continued participation will require upgrading skills to comply with RDA rules and changing PCC/NACO procedures. Existing NACO libraries will take online tutorials developed by PCC and LC before March 2013 and go through a review process. Several art catalogers have indicated an interest in joining Art NACO. This workshop will be aimed at the new participants as well as giving current participants a chance to refresh their skills for RDA. Workshop materials will be aimed at those with experience building MARC bibliographic records and using authorized headings from the LC Name Authority File.

Maximum Participants: 25

Fee: $50
