Committees: BCC: Descriptive Cataloging Subcommittee

Charge

To formulate MLA policy on all matters related to the descriptive cataloging of music materials in libraries. Specifically, the Subcommittee is responsible for all matters concerning the content (but not the encoding or transmission) of descriptive data elements and descriptive portions of machine-readable bibliographic records for music resources. This includes international cataloging standards and their supplemental guidelines, such as the Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules; Library of Congress Rule Interpretations; RDA: Resource Description and Access; Library of Congress Policy Statements; and International Standard Bibliographic Description documents. Further, the Subcommittee tends to other matters deemed pertinent by the Bibliographic Control Committee. The Chair serves as the MLA representative to the ALA/ALCTS/CaMMS Committee on Cataloging: Description and Access (CC:DA).
