Event Coming to Terms with the New LC Vocabularies: Genre/Form (Literature, Music, General), Demographic Groups and Medium of Performance

by ALAConnect Helpdesk (staff) on Mon, Jun 8, 2015 at 11:31 am

The Library of Congress, ALCTS/SAC and MLA have collaborated on new vocabularies to provide genre/form access to literature, music, and "general" works as well as controlled lists of demographic terms and medium of performance terms; new MARC fields are in place for attributes of works including audience, creator characteristics, and time period of creation. Leading contributors to this work will describe the context, development, and practical application of these new vocabularies and fields.

Bring your questions and share your experiences in using the medium of performance terms.
