This 90-minute workshop introduces catalogers to three new Library of Congress vocabularies as they apply to music resources—the Library of Congress Medium of Performance Thesaurus for Music (LCMPT), the Library of Congress Genre/Form Thesaurus (LCGFT), and the Library of Congress Demographic Group Terms (LCDGT). These innovative tools enable faceted access to music materials via library discovery environments. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to search and navigate these vocabularies, apply MLA best practices for assigning terms in current cataloging, and how to code the terms in MARC21. Catalogers of all levels of experience with the vocabularies will benefit from this comprehensive overview.
