Programmatic Changes to the LC/NACO Authority File for RDA

This hour-long webinar covers the changes to the LC/NACO authority file related to RDA. The phased approach to changes adopted by the PCC will be discused, such as records with the 667 update notice added during Phase 1, as well as records updated as part of Phase 2 of Changes to the LC/NACO Authority File. Changes to the LC/NACO authority file came from the work of two PCC task forces, most recently the PCC Acceptable Headings Implementation Task Group.

This session is part of a two-webinar series that includes CONSER RDA Core Elements for Serials on February 13.
