The MLA Vocabularies Subcommittee is pleased to offer a new version of the document Best Practices for Using LCMPT. In addition to a number of minor formatting and stylistic updates, the following new content is incorporated:
- Guidance for use of the new 382 subfields $r and $t
- Expanded guidance on “bi-level” medium statements
- Expanded guidance on partial medium statements
- Clarification on polychoral situations
As always, feedback and questions can be directed to me (firstname.lastname@example.org). Additionally, the new revision will be briefly discussed at the VS business meeting and at the CMC Town Hall at MLA Orlando.
I wish to thank the VS task group who prepared this revision, amidst a shifting landscape of MARC format updates and evolving practices with faceted vocabularies.
