ALISE Members and Cataloging Educators,

The ALA Subject Analysis Committee will be meeting twice at ALA Annual  
in DC.

On Sunday June 27, 8 am-11-ish, in the HYATT: Regency A, we will have
reports from: the Sears List of Subject Headings, Library of Congress's
Policy and Standards Division, the Dewey Decimal Classification, the  
Library Association, the Art Library Association, MARBI, and an update  
the American Association of Law Libraries.

On Monday, June 28, 1:30 pm-4:30-ish, in the HYATT: Yorktown/Valley  
we will have reports from: the SAC Subcommittee on Genre/Form
Implementation, the SAC Subcommittee on FAST, OCLC's FAST project, IFLA
Classification and Indexing Section, and the SACO-at-Large meeting. We  
also have an update on a joint project with LC's PSD on free-floating
subdivisions, discussions of new business, an open discussion period,  

In addition, on Monday we will have a special presentation on IFLA's
Functional Requirements for Subject Authority Data (FRSAD) by Marcia  
Zeng of Kent
State University to review the basics of the model and to discuss the  
developments on FRSAD. The FRSAD presentation is planned for 3:30 to  
4:30 on

Please be aware that this will be our first "green" meeting. We will  
not be
making copies of the reports for the members, liaisons, or the audience.
Instead we will be uploading the reports into the SAC space in ALA  
by June 18th. They will be made viewable to the public so that  
everyone can
have access to the reports. The agenda has already been uploaded along  
the Midwinter minutes. Other reports will be added as they come in. Most
reports will be available before the conference; some reports that cover
activities at ALA Annual will be made available in ALA Connect shortly  
the conference is over.

Hope to see you in DC!
