The Subject Authority Cooperative Project (SACO) is a component of the Program for Cooperative Cataloging (PCC). A policy specialist from the Library of Congress Cataloging Policy and Support Office (CPSO) will present the concepts and practical aspects of creating and changing subject authority headings for Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH). The basic session, held in the morning, will focus on the fundamentals of constructing and submitting subject proposals on any topic. A more advanced session, held in the afternoon, will focus on law subject headings specifically and on proposing new class numbers and changes to the Library of Congress Classification (LCC) system. Attending a SACO workshop gives new participants a glimpse into the essential role they may play in cooperative cataloging activities.
