Introduction to LC Faceted Vocabularies for Music Resources Workshop
A 90-minute workshop, Wednesday, August 29, 2018, 2:30pm Eastern/1:30 Central/12:30 Mountain/11:30am Pacific

This 90-minute workshop introduces catalogers to three new Library of Congress vocabularies as they apply to music resources—the Library of Congress Medium of Performance Thesaurus for Music (LCMPT), the Library of Congress Genre/Form Thesaurus (LCGFT), and the Library of Congress Demographic Group Terms (LCDGT). These innovative tools enable faceted access to music materials via library discovery environments. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to search and navigate these vocabularies, apply MLA best practices for assigning terms in current cataloging, and how to code the terms in MARC21.

Catalogers of all levels of experience with the vocabularies will benefit from this comprehensive overview.

By participating in this workshop, you will learn

  • How to search and navigate the vocabularies
  • How to apply MLA best practices for assigning terms in current cataloging
  • How to code the terms in MARC21
  • Methods for retrospective implementation of the vocabularies in legacy metadata
  • The relationship between LCSH headings for music and the LC faceted terminology

While completing your purchase, fill in the name and e-mail address of the group leader who will sign in to the event by clicking the "Attendees" button to the right of the item in your cart. This individual will receive an e-mail from WebEx confirming registration before the event begins.
