          Friday, July 7, 2000

           The Program for Cooperative Cataloging (PCC) will
          present two workshops Friday, July 7, 2000, in support of
          SACO, the Subject Authority Cooperative Program of the
          PCC.

           The workshops are open at no charge on a first-come-
          first-served basis to all catalogers interested in proposing
new
          class numbers and changes to Library of Congress
          Classification schedules (LCC) and new headings and changes
          to the Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH).
          Training materials will be provided free of charge at the
          workshop.  PCC programs will comply with the Americans with
          Disabilities Act.

           At the end of these workshops, participants will be
          better able to prepare classification number proposals for LCC

          and subject proposals for LCSH.
