> 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

> *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.
