Faceted Vocabularies with Adam L. Schiff

Spring 2019 Program:
Tuesday May 14, 2019: *5:30PM – 8:00PM *
Margaret Liebman Berger Forum (Room 227)
Stephen A. Schwarzman Building – New York Public Library

Spring 2019 Workshop:
Wednesday May 15, 2019: *9:00AM-5:00PM*
Butler Library Room 523
Columbia University, Morningside Campus

The Library of Congress has developed a separate thesaurus of genre/form
terms, which describe what a resource is, rather than what it is about. New
MARC fields have been created for recording faceted data, including
characteristics of creators and audiences, and time period or place of
creation. This workshop and program will focus on the application of
Library of Congress Genre/Form Terms (LCGFT) and Library of Congress
Demographic Group Terms (LCDGT), with exercises to give attendees an
opportunity to practice what they have learned. Hear strategies for
retrospective application of faceted terms and for using faceted
vocabularies to enhance discovery.  Space is limited!

Attendees are strongly encouraged to bring a laptop to the workshop in
order to participate fully.

About the presenter:
Adam L. Schiff has been Principal Cataloger at the University of Washington
Libraries in Seattle since 1997. He served as the Chair of the ALCTS
Subject Analysis Committee’s Subcommittee on Genre/Form Implementation for
six years, during which time the subcommittee cooperated with the Library
of Congress to create the initial group of literature and general Library
of Congress Genre/Form Terms and the first draft of the Library of Congress
Genre/Form Terms Manual. It also created a number of MARC proposals for
recording audience, creator/contributor, and chronological creation
characteristics of works and expressions (new MARC fields 385, 386, and
388). Adam has given numerous trainings and webinars on genre/form and
demographic group terms as well as training for libraries wishing to
propose new terms to LC controlled vocabularies through the Program for
Cooperative Cataloging’s SACO Program.
