What is Authority Control, why is it important? How can Authority Control help provide consistent access and
what does it have to do with MARC? For answers to these questions and more, come to the LACONI TSS
program Introduction to Authority Control. Paul Frank, NACO/SACO Coordinator for the Library of Congress
will join us remotely via WebEx for an introduction to the topic, followed by in-person presentations on
different aspects of authority control such as Name Authority Records, Uniform Titles, Genre Authority
Records and more. If you have specific questions about authority control, please send them ahead of the
workshop to Joy Anhalt,
