NACO training workshop coming February 2023

Participants in the Name Authority Cooperative Program (NACO) contribute MARC authority records for titles, agents such as persons and corporate bodies, and places to the LC/NACO Authority File. Members also assist the Library of Congress with the File’s maintenance by reporting duplicate records and performing other tasks. Within NACO, groups of libraries can pool their resources to achieve these same goals without the overhead of yearly quotas. These groups are called funnels; in fact, about a dozen libraries collaborate in one such funnel here in Minnesota. The Library of Congress is looking to host an online NACO training workshop for invited guests in February 2023. Specific dates are not yet set. Minnesota NACO Funnel members are welcome to participate, as are libraries interested in joining the Funnel.
