Committee on Cataloging: Description & Access
Task Force on the Harmonization of ISBD(ER) and AACR2
CC:DA/TF/Harmonization of ISBD(ER)/1
The Task Force on the Harmonization of ISBD(ER) and AACR2 is charged with the detailed review of the ISBD(ER): International Standard Bibliographic Description for Electronic Resources. The Task Force report will likely form the substance of the ALA response to the ISBD(ER). Specifically, the Task Force is charged with noting areas in which Part 1 of AACR2 and Chapter 9 and Appendix D (Glossary), in particular, are not in conformance with the ISBD(ER) and, if necessary, proposing rule revisions to harmonize AACR2 with the ISBD(ER).
The final report of the Task Force shall be presented to CC:DA at the 1999 ALA Midwinter Meeting and shall be sent to the Chair no later than January 10, 1999 to facilitate distribution prior to the Midwinter Meeting in Philadelphia.
