Please excuse multiple postings.
The PCC Acceptable Headings Implementation Task Group (the group's charge is available here: http://files.library.northwestern.edu/public/pccahitg/) solicits input from the broadest possible representation of interested parties on the handling of subfield $c in AACR2 personal name headings during the manipulation of the LC/NACO authority file for use under RDA. The task group has prepared a document that describes the problem to be addressed and gives instructions for providing your input. There is an accompanying spreadsheet of subfield $c texts you can use to convey information about each subfield $c text; or you can create a document to describe how subfield $c should be handled. Information received will have significant input on the task group's decision on the handling of subfield $c.
The descriptions and instructions are available in this document: http://files.library.northwestern.edu/public/pccahitg/RDA conversion.Subfield c.doc
The accompanying spreadsheet is: http://files.library.northwestern.edu/public/pccahitg/RDA conversion.Subfield c.xls
Although at least one member of the task group monitors this list, questions regarding this work are best sent directly to the task group at its own e-mail address: [log in to unmask] Your input on the handling of subfield $c should also be sent to the group at this same address.
Please strive to return your input to the task group by the end of the day on Feb. 29, 2012.
The time it will take to provide this input is acknowledged and greatly appreciated by the task group. Thank you.
