V. Authority Control

A. Name, Uniform Title and Series Headings

Personal, corporate, and conference names, uniform titles, and series names must follow current AACR standards, as adopted by LC.  If LC has not established a particular name form, the cataloging library should do so, following current AACR and LC practice.  In the case of name/title headings, the title portion should be formatted to uniform title procedures.

B. Subject Headings

Each library must use the current LC Subject Headings when assigning subjects to items.

All subject headings must be encoded with the proper indicator, in the OCLC-MARC format, in order to keep each system of headings separate.

C. VLC will provide ongoing authority control
