Conference Proceeding: NACO after 25 Years: The Yeshiva University Experience

In 1999, Marlene authored a presentation entitled “NACO after Five Years: The Experience of Yeshiva University” (Proceedings of the 34th Annual Convention of the Association of Jewish Libraries, AJL: 2000, pp. 106-113). It is time to reevaluate our experience with a paper entitled “NACO after 25 Years.” There have been many changes in cataloging in general, and in the establishment of names in particular, that have both benefited the NACO community and have complicated the process. This paper will provide examples of name authorities that have been proposed or altered according to the newest rules and the effects of later standards and methods such as RDA and electronic resources (Wikipedia, Facebook, E-mail, pop-up template, etc.) in the process of entering NARs (name authority records) in the NACO Hebraica Funnel.
