Authority Tools for Audio-Visual and Music Catalogers

The list of "Authority Tools for Audio-Visual and Music Catalogers," sponsored by OnLine Audiovisual Catalogers, has been available for nearly two years now. Based on feedback we've received about its usefulness, we would like to continue to expand and update the list, so that it continues to be valuable.

If you have a few favorite, indispensable sources you use in your authority work that aren't already included in the list, and if you'd like to share your knowledge about these gems with colleagues, we would be happy to include your annotations for these works in the list of authority tools. Also, if you've used the list in the past and have suggestions for improving the layout, indexes, etc., we'd like to hear your thoughts as well. In either case, contact me at the e-mail address below.

If you would like to propose annotating a title, please contact me by October 31. I will confirm that we don't already have a reviewer for the work. Annotations will need to be received by November 30 to be included in this update. If you have questions that aren't answered at the above site, don't hesitate to contact me.

Thanks; I look forward to hearing from you.
