For me, I think the primary benefit is providing subject
headings for materials at the appropriate level of specificity.  I tackled
this topic in the SACO Participants' Manual in the section entitled "Why
Participate in SACO?"

Personally, my participation in SACO has been the thing that has enriched
me a great deal in my professional growth and recognition by my peers.
It's immensely rewarding to see a heading that one has researched and
submitted get included in LCSH, and then I find it even more rewarding
when I see other records from other libraries using that same heading.
That shows me that without my contribution, others may have been forced to
use a less specific heading (unless they learn to submit SACO proposals
themselves), with the corresponding ramifications that that has for
retrieval in the catalog.
