Adding Death Dates to Existing Records

LCRI 22.17 which deals with dates added to personal name authorities has been revised and republished in February 2006 based on a change in policy. This change in policy was the result of comments made regarding the Library of Congress Cataloging Policy and Support Office (CPSO) proposal to allow the addition of death dates to headings in the LC/NACO Authority File. The original proposal was slightly modified based on comments received to limit the addition of death dates to those headings with “open” birth dates. More information regarding the Library of Congress plan for implementing this revised policy is available at http://www.loc.gov/catdir/cpso/lcri22_17imp.html
