Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Target Audience: Librarians who want to improve Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH), but do not know how

Learning Outcomes:
1) Participants will be able to complete a subject heading proposal form accurately.
2) Participants will know the criteria used in evaluating Subject Authority Cooperative Program (SACO) heading proposals.

The Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH) will grow and evolve only if librarians take an active role in its curation. Through hands-on practice, participants will work together to conceive, compose, evaluate, and submit a draft proposal for SACO of the Program for Cooperative Cataloging (PCC), the editorial body that ultimately adds and changes terms in LCSH, via the TS-SIS Law Funnel. This program will involve participants in the kinds of discussions in which the LCSH editorial board engages.
