The PCC Participants Meeting at the ALA Annual Conference in Anaheim will be an open forum to gather community input on a discussion paper that proposes changes to how undifferentiated personal name records are handled in the LC/NACO Authority File.



The paper: "The Future of Undifferentiated Personal Name Authority Records and Other Implications for PCC Authority Work<http://www.loc.gov/aba/pcc/Undiff%20Personal%20NARs%20Discussion%20Paper%20March%202012.doc>" by John J. Riemer and Philip E. Schreur, was distributed to several cataloging email lists on March 29, 2012. The in-person discussion at ALA Annual in Anaheim will bring the comment period on this paper to a close.
