Get with the BEAT

The Library of Congress Bibliographic Enrichment Advisory Team (BEAT) celebrated its tenth anniversary this summer. There is an extensive description of their work in the LC Cataloging Newsline (LCCN) vol. 12 no.9 (which I get via email but is not yet posted on their web site). BEAT’s work is about ‘enriching the content of Library of Congress bibliographic records, improving access to the data the records contain, and conducting research and development in related areas.’ Anyone interested in enriching bibliographic records to improve retrieval and presentation should be aware of the excellent work of David Williamson and the BEAT: http://www.loc.gov/catdir/beat
