Moving Image Genre/Form Project Report

As announced on several discussion lists and posted on the CPSO site

On July 9th, 2008, the Cataloging Policy and Support Office (CPSO) presented a report on the moving image genre/form project to the Library of Congress Acquisitions and Bibliographic Access (ABA) management team. The report includes recommendations for expanding the genre/form project beyond the moving image and radio program headings assigned and created by LC’s Motion Picture, Broadcasting, and Recorded Sound Divison. ABA management has approved this expansion to include other disciplines and CPSO will be releasing further details on implementation strategies as these are developed. The report is available in PDF format via the link below.

I am glad to see that this project will be expanded to other disciplines.  The report points out the principles guiding this project and has several recommendations, including exploring methods for future collaboration with the broader cataloging community.
