A national library joins the NACO Program!: LAC and NACO documentation
Library and Archives Canada's (LAC) size and its status as a national library are exciting aspects of the library's NACO membership. New NACO documentation was created to address LAC's national library status, and existing NACO documentation was edited to include the unique MARC data elements that LAC would be supplying in its NACO contributions. This part of the presentation will discuss that new and updated NACO documentationpart of the panel,
Welcome to LAC/ Bienvenue à BAC – A new bilingual NACO partner
In 2018, Library and Archives Canada (LAC) replaced its ILS with OCLC’s WorldShare Management System (WMS). As a part of the transition, LAC split its single, bilingual authority file Canadiana Authorities into separate English and French language files and joined NACO in order to manage its English-language authority records. This panel will discuss this national library’s history of bilingual cataloguing, the reason for the changes, and the attempt to ensure that the two files “talk” to each other. NACO libraries will be interested to learn what unique information they may see in these records from LAC.
