• NACO Training
  • 024 Temporary Moratorium
  • Series authorities
    The creation and maintenance of series authorities records involves a training process that is discrete from that involved with personal, corporate,  and family names.  catalogers wishing to engage in this training through the self-guided course through LC should first have the approval of  the  Head of C&MS who will assign a reviewer and a time-line for training.


UC Berkeley is an active participant in the SACO program. Because of the amount of time involved in the research, creation, and approval process, however, it is advised that anyone wishing to contribute a subject authority or add to the classification schedules a pre-1925 literary number consult with the Principal Cataloger before starting the process. More information maybe found on LC's SACO page.
