Subject: Revisions to BL Contributed Headings
At the request of the British Library, the Coop Team reminds NACO members to
please adhere to the section of Z1 (the yellow pages), 1XX, p. 1, relating
to revision of name authority records contributed by the British Library. In
short, please remember to inform the British Library, through the e-mail
address listed [log in to unmask], of changes made to headings (1XXs only)
contributed by the BL (040 $a Uk $b eng $c Uk)
The British Library are currently in the process of data migration
preparatory to the implementation of their new system. At the same time,
they are delinking their catalogue from the BLNAL and testing linkage with
the NACO Authority File.
Failure by NACO members to follow the procedures outlined in Z1 (the yellow
pages) make these actions on the part of the BL even more difficult than
can be exected of a "normal" implementation.
