English abstract

In researching the topic of my presentation it was my task to determine if the SACO Program component of the Program for Cooperative Cataloging (PCC) could be related to subject gateways or if it might be considered a subject gateway in its own right. SACO is described as the subject component of the Program for Cooperative Cataloging. Within the PCC framework it is SACO that allows catalogers to submit subject heading proposals for possible inclusion in the list of Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH) and allows for the modification of existing subject headings and/or modification of the existing subject heading hierarchy.

Italian abstract

Nello svolgere l’argomento della relazione era mio intento determinare se la componente SACO del Program for Cooperative Cataloging (PCC) potesse essere collegata ai subject gateways o potesse di per se stessa essere considerata quale un subject gateway. SACO viene descritta come la componente-soggetto del Program for Cooperative Cataloging. All’interno della struttura PCC è SACO, che permette ai catalogatori di sottoporre le proposte relative alle intestazioni di soggetto per una loro possibile inclusione nelle Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH) e tiene conto della modifica delle intestazioni di soggetto esistenti e/o della modifica dell’attuale gerarchia delle intestazioni di soggetto.
