Judy Kuhagen, Cataloging Policy Specialist, CPSO, has asked us to post
this notice to all PCC lists, apologies for the duplication.
      **********************************************
Effective immediately, NACO participants who contribute SARs to the
national authority file may contribute SARs for all categories of
videorecordings (materials covered by AACR2 Chapter 7).

There had been a restriction on some categories of videorecording series
since LC staff use the Archival Moving Image Materials rules instead of
AACR2 for such materials.  A note about LC's use of the other rules
(which call for the "series" title and the "volume" title both to be
recorded in the 245 field of the bibliographic record) may be added by
LC to the NACO SARs in the future.

Do not request BFM of any videorecording series if LC's bibliographic
record has the series title in the 245 field.  In these situations, LC's
bibliographic records will not follow the NACO SARs.
