Genre headings are being used more frequently by libraries in bibliographic records to indicate the type of material that is being described in a record. The Library of Congress plans to reissue all their genre/form authority records in the near future. This will mean changes in the way LC genre terms are tagged in MARC records.
OCLC is offering a webinar, presented by Linda Gabel, which will cover not only LC's planned changes, but also usage of other genre/form vocabularies in MARC records.
This session is free but please register so OCLC knows how many to expect.
