It then summarizes its activities in each of five areas: (1) documentation of local authority control (cataloging) practices; (2) consultation with vendors of authority control data and their customers; (3) identification of national cataloging and authority control standards; (4) recommendations for the ongoing coordination of authority work within the consortium; and (5) recommendations for written HELIN policy and procedures for the creation, update and ongoing evaluation of bibliographic and authority records in the consortium. The report also provides a statement of the HELIN systemwide online cataloging policies for bibliographic, item, and authority records. Lists of authorized cataloging standards and standard cataloging abbreviations are appended. (MAB)
