Thanks for the response Ana. I appreciate your help. The LC examples I was given by my cataloger as "proof" that it was okay are n2004-106142, n2005178471, n97107053, n97072158, n97905693. I was glad to know I hadn't totally lost it in the cataloging department.
I just got back from a disappointing work trip to Paris. I had to look at a collection there that was pretty unexciting and less than what it was billed as. On top of that I got sick early on which made it hard to really enjoy the city. I know it's a favorite of yours. Had a very good meal at a restaurant recommended by Tom Sietsma last year and another good one at a restaurant I have been to before that appeared in this month's Bon Appetit.
Otherwise, life continues on its course.
Hope you are well.

Subject: Re: [PCCLIST] AACR2 compatible headings
As of Sept. 31, 2006 there were exactly 46,819 NARs coded 008/10 "d" in
the LC/NACO Authority File. I don't think this number has grown
significantly since then.

Does anyone have figures on the number of
AACR2-compatible records currently in the authority file? Just
