661 45  2 0 183 6 5 0 1223

In fy2011, there were no significant gains or losses in the overall number of NACO contributions.  We contributed 1,223 name and series authority records to the National Authority File, a very slight increase of from (fy10) 1,216, an increase of 7, overall. Personal name contributions decreased from (fy10) 665 to (fy11) 661, a decrease by 4. Again this year, personal name contributions represent over 50% of the total (fy11) NACO contributions with a percentage increase of 54% same as (fy10) increase over (fy09). Corporate body names submissions increased by 32% from (fy10) 244 to (fy11) 321, an increase of 77.  The 32% increase in the number of corporate body name authority records can be attributed, in part, to cataloging projects coordinated by Jane Anne Carey to catalog approximately 2,053 titles for the Egolf, Haskins and Coffey gift collections for the Baldwin Library. Series contributions decreased from (fy10) 208 to (fy11) 183, a decrease by 25, or 12%.  

      

Worth Mentioning:

  • Copy catalogers continue to participate in the NACO Program by creating numbered series authority records in Aleph for local review/contribution to the National Authority File (NAF).  This supports the department’s goal to increase national contributions. 
  • The Cataloging Department continues the work to catalog 300,000 items in the STODOCS project.  The project produces only a minimal amount of NACO work. 

Many thanks again this year for the strong program support from Betsy and for the many contributions from our catalogers.  Your contributions remain key to the success and sustainability of the program!
