Moving Image Work-Level Records

The Moving Image Work-Level Records Task Force is look for comments about their work by Friday, February 13, 2009.
The Moving Image Work-Level Records Task Force of CAPC (OLAC's Cataloging Policy Committee) has posted a finalized version of parts 1-2 of our recommendations. This document covers definitions, boundaries, attributes, and relationships.

We have also posted a draft of part 4, which covers our proof-of-concept attempt to extract work/primary expression-level information from existing MARC manifestation bibliographic records. It also gives some recommendations for cataloging practice and changes to the MARC format based on our experience. We are particularly interested in feedback on readability of the report and on the recommendations that we're making.
The OLAC website has a nice new look. Have you renewed your membership in OLAC? It is a Best Buy.
