The 30th annual NASIG conference will be held in Washington
DC May 27 to May 30.  There will be some amazing post
conferences on May 30 and 31.  

Les Hawkins and Hien Nguyen from the Library of Congress
will be leading a workshop on Saturday afternoon and Sunday
morning that will “provide an overview of the basic
principles underlying authority control in the context of
serials cataloging and the MARC 21 authority format. The
material will describe what authority control is and why it
is important. The standards used to create authorized access
points and authority records will be introduced.  Basic
instructions for constructing authorized access points and
authority records for works, expressions, personal names,
corporate names, and conference names will be presented.”

It’s not too late to register, but early bird registration
ends on April 29.  We promise you’ll have a fun and
informative time.  Register here,
