NACO Participants' Manual

The third edition of the NACO Participants' Manual was published in August and represents the collective efforts of many members of the Program for Cooperative Cataloging (PCC), the Library of Congress (LC) Cooperative Cataloging Team, and the LC Cataloging Policy and Support Office. The PCC Standing Committee on Training provided assistance throughout the process. The manual addresses Name Authority Cooperative Program (NACO) procedures for name authority records and is intended to be used in conjunction with other authoritative documentation, including documentation from the OCLC and RLG bibliographic utilities. The manual has been extensively revised and updated to reflect current practice. One notable change from the earlier edition is the omission of subject practices since they are covered in the Subject Cataloging Manual: Subject Headings. The new publication is available in PDF file format, or as part of the LC Cataloging Distribution Service's Cataloger's Desktop.--Also from the LCCN Cataloging Newsletter v. 13, no. 12.
