AALL: The Future of Subject Access in the 21st Century

Beverly Burmeister reports on a meeting that took place at AALL.  The speakers were Barbara Tillett and Lois Mai Chan.  From the middle of the report:

For the future, Dr. Tillett predicted that the global use of LCSH will expand and that the process will be improved to reduce costs and at the same time maintain the system.

In her presentation, Dr. Chan offered her suggestions for changes to LCSH which would be theoretically sound but at the same time be more useful to OPAC and web users. 

Interesting predictions on how LCSH can be maintained yet brought in line with current trends.
