A List of Uniform Headings for Latin American Literatures


The Cataloguing Section aims to publish a list of anonymous classics for Latin America, with the collaboration of national libraries and cataloguing agencies from the region. The identification of Works is essential to boost activities related to authority control, FRBR models and Linked Data, and also to facilitate potential future implementations of cataloguing rules based on FRBR models in Latin America.

The Anonymous Classics Working Group has contacted Latin American national libraries and cataloguing agencies during 2015 to start the compilation. National libraries or cataloguing agencies willing to contribute with the list, please find the works selection criteria and the data collection template below, and submit the information to Maria Violeta Bertolini or Ricardo Santos until August 31st 2015.
