Get ready for another session of exciting discussion!   Topics include:

A discussion of a discussion paper from LC's Geography and Maps Division:
Proposed Treatment of Globes in the LCGFT Environment

In 2009 the Library of Congress’ Policy and Standards Division (PSD) and LC’s Geography and Maps Division (G&M) began a project to develop genre/form terms for cartographic materials.  In 2010 approximately 60 terms were approved for use and implemented.  However, an important issue has not yet been resolved:  What is the appropriate genre/form treatment for globes? 

PSD and G&M have collaborated on a discussion paper that proposes an answer to this question.  The paper is available on LC's web site at http://www.loc.gov/catdir/cpso/genreformgeneral.html and responses may be sent to Janis L. Young, LC's genre/form coordinator, at jayo@loc.gov by July 31, 2012.
