  1. Examine how ILS's make use of linking entry fields in records for serials and other resources and establish criteria for assessing their effectiveness in handling this data.
  2. Determine the types of functionality that are needed to use such links effectively.
  3. Develop a list of “best practices” for ILS's in making use of linking entry fields in order to optimize access.
  4. As appropriate, consider the recommendations of the JSC task group on expression level cataloging in regard to links and how these recommendations might impact on the work of this group.

  • A brief history of AACR (JSC). Reseña histórica desde “Early English Language Cataloguing Codes” hasta “AACR2 2002 Revision”.

<blockquote> Abstract<br> Authority control is a vital component of any catalogue. Although AACR2 does provide guidance on choosing access points for bibliographic records and on formulating headings and references, until now it has neglected authority control. AACR2 does not provide information on the principles of authority control or guidance on the essential elements of an authority record.

AACR3, due for publication in 2007, offers the perfect opportunity to redress this. Explicit guidance on authority control and the construction of authority records will be included in a new Part III.

Building on the conceptual model provided in FRBR, there will be greater opportunity to expose bibliographic relationships through the use of headings for works and headings for expressions. </blockquote>
