Summary:

The Library of Congress’s newest controlled vocabulary, the Library of Congress Medium of Performance Thesaurus for Music (LCMPT) was released in February 2014. How are catalogers using it? What challenges have they come across? How will these terms be used in the future? Hermine Vermeij, Casey Mullin, Nancy Lorimer, and Janis Young will lead an informal presentation and discussion on LCMPT. Bring your questions and share your experiences in using the medium of performance terms.

 

Our presenters have varied experience in working with the development of LCMPT through ALA, the Music Library Association, and the Library of Congress.
