Many thanks for this eagerly-awaited set of training materials.
While looking through, I found the following note on Slide 6 of Module 2:
“Beginning on July 9, 2013 access points for individual fictitious and legendary characters and individual animals with proper names will be established only in the name authority file using RDA instructions.”
I may have missed an announcement of this welcome change, which I notice also appears in LC-PCC-PS for 9.0.
I’ll send more comments when I’ve got to the end of the slides.

I am happy to announce the posting of the new NACO Training Materials on the Cataloger's Learning Workshop page:
These are the instructor Power Point presentations and trainee authority worksheets.
The training modules were created and tested by the RDA NACO Program Training Workshop Task Group, under the chairmanship of Lori Robare, University of Oregon. The members of the task group were Michael Colby (University of California--Davis), Joanna Dyla (Stanford University), Fang Gao (Government Printing Office), Robert Maxwell (Brigham Young University), Mark Scharff (Washington University), and Adam Schiff (University of Washington).
The Task Group recommends that the training materials be released in a soft launch to allow for further feedback over the next few months and possible revision based on that feedback.
Please report any feedback on the training modules to [log in to unmask].
