New York Technical Services Librarians, est. 1923

2019 May 14-15: Library of Congress Faceted Vocabularies (Program and Workshop)

Adam L. Schiff, Principal Cataloger at the University of Washington Libraries

The Library of Congress has developed a separate thesaurus of genre/form terms, which describe what a resource is, rather than what it is about. New MARC fields have been created for recording faceted data, including characteristics of creators and audiences, and time period or place of creation. This workshop and program will focus on the application of Library of Congress Genre/Form Terms (LCGFT) and Library of Congress Demographic Group Terms (LCDGT), with exercises to give attendees an opportunity to practice what they have learned. Hear strategies for retrospective application of faceted terms and for using faceted vocabularies to enhance discovery.

Megan Wacha, Scholarly Communications Librarian, City University of New York

Luiza Wainer, Metadata Librarian, Princeton University

Over the past years, interest in potential applications of Wikidata, the structured data underlying Wikipedia, has steadily grown within the library, archives, and museum communities. Our program will feature two panelists whose work has bridged the gap between libraries and the Wikidata/Wikimedia community.
