MLA's MARC Proposals Supported by MARC Advisory Committee

Posted By James L. Soe Nyun, Tuesday, July 12, 2016

I will be posting a link to some extensive notes about happenings at ALA Annual of interest to folks interested in all things encoding standards. But until then I wanted to share the news that MLA's three MARC proposals were approved by the MARC Advisory Committee to move forward to the MARC Steering Group.

The three proposals in question:

  • 2016-09: Recording Distributor Number for Music and Moving Image Materials in the MARC 21 Bibliographic Format
  • 2016-08: Redefining Code Values in Field 008/20 (Format of Music) in the MARC 21 Bibliographic Format
  • 2016-07: Defining Subfield $3 in Field 382 of the MARC 21 Bibliographic Format

Thanks very much to everyone who worked on the proposals or provided feedback!

My notes will also include further details on the MAC discussions about many of the discussion papers and proposals put forward by other organizations that are likely to be of interest to music folks.
