Task Force on Seriality and AACR2R


“Revising AACR2 to Accommodate Seriality”
Report (9/1/99)

CC:DA/TF/Seriality and AACR2R/1/Rev


The Task Force on Seriality and AACR2R is charged with the detailed review of Jean Hirons’s “Revising AACR2 to Accommodate Seriality: Report to the Joint Steering Committee for Revision of AACR.” Specifically, the Task Force will review the issues and recommendations raised in the report, focusing on those dealing with AACR2R and the bibliographic universe rather than with MARC 21. As necessary, the Task Force will recommend appropriate actions for CC:DA to take in response to the Hirons report. The Task Force’s report will likely form the substance of the ALA response to the Hirons report.

The final report of the Task Force shall be sent to the Chair no later than September 1, 1999 to allow for distribution and discussion within CC:DA before the close of the worldwide review period on September 30, 1999.
