We do use LCNAF and LCSH, along with AAT, in creating files names and subject/format/function headings.  Once a record is created, we have not been keeping up with LC changes unless that finding aid is revised, then I try and check to see if the names are still current.  Usually it is LCSH or AAT terms that have changed.  I would be interested in know if EAC-CPF could be used in this context>

We're in pretty much the same boat as Kate. Could EAC-CPF be used in this context as well? Seems like it could, but I'm not yet too informed on EAC-CPF.

Hi all --

Just wondering, for those of you that use LCNAF and LCSH when creating EAD finding aids, how do you ensure that those names remain up to date over time, given that LC updates their name authorities and subject headings on a regular basis?
