Retrospective Conversion of Music Materials. Report of a conference sponsored by the Council on Library Resources (Wayzatta, Minnesota, July 18-19, 1984).
Gregor, Dorothy, Ed.
This meeting on the retrospective conversion (RECON) of music materials brought together 21 individuals to plan the integration and coordination of RECON activities within the context of the music library community. Major music societies and professional music groups were represented as were music faculty and composing communities. This document reports the activities of and recommendations resulting from the meeting. Participants were prepared for the discussion by five position papers: (1) "Names of Persons and Organizations Associated with the Musical Creation" (Richard P. Smiraglia); (2) "Retrospective Conversion of Subject Headings and Series" (Catherine R. Garland); (3) "Uniquely Musical Access Points (Coded)" (Arsen Ralph Papakhian); (4) "What Can Be Accomplished at the Terminal?" (Connie Field); and (5) "Post Input Authority Work for Retrospective Conversion of Bibliographic Items for Music: What Are the Possibilities?" (Ed Glazier). Three subgroups were formed to address the issues raised in the position papers and to discuss the organizational questions posed by the desire to coordinate the efforts of AMLG (Associated Music Libraries Group) and REMUS (a committee of the OCLC Music Users Group). Their individual recommendations and a summary of the group recommendations are included. A meeting agenda, a list of participants, a worksheet on standards for retrospective conversion, and a summary of the Retrospective Conversion Meeting are appended. (THC)
