SACO Law Funnel

The Law Funnel Project is an initiative of a working group established by the Classification and Subject Cataloging Policy Advisory Group (CSCAG), Cataloging and Classification Standing Committee, American Association of Law Libraries (AALL).

An online form is available for AALL members to use when submitting proposals for new subject headings, genre/form terms, or classification numbers through the funnel.

Submit Proposal Now!

Funnel administrators will review proposals before distributing them to the CSCAG electronic list for blind comment. After CSCAG review, the funnel coordinator will submit vetted proposals to Library of Congress, Program for Cooperative Cataloging, Subject Authority Cooperative Program for consideration.

By tapping into the range of experience of AALL members and the collection strengths of law libraries across the country, this funnel aims to leverage the collective wisdom of the law library community, with the goal of crafting proposals for the most widely beneficial terms and classification numbers.
