ACIG Annual 2014 - Hermine Vermeij, LCMPT report

Presentation by Hermine Vermeij at the Authority Control Interest Group (ACIG) meeting at ALA Annual, Las Vegas, NV, Sunday, June 29, 2014, 1pm-3pm.

In February 2014 the Library of Congress launched a new vocabulary, the Library of Congress Medium of Performance Thesaurus for Music (LCMPT). Hermine Vermeij (Team Leader, Subject Specialists Catalogers at UCLA and past chair of the Music Library Association Subject Access Subcommittee) discussed the vocabulary and why it was needed, its history, and its potential to change the way we catalog and discover music. She demonstrated how to use it with several examples and explained what areas of the vocabulary and its application are still in flux, and plans for the future.
