Currently the funnel project is concentrating on the creation of new subject headings and the changing or updating of old subject headings that are used in the cataloging of topics that relate to the Middle East and are reflected in Middle Eastern collections.
It is envisioned that the forthcoming contributions will be able to provide greater and better access to these materials.
Anyone interested in becoming a participant in the funnel project should contact Joyce Bell, Princeton University, by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone: 609.258.8625
Contributions are expected to come from members of the Middle East Librarians Association [MARC 21 code: PaPhMEL] and therefore will relate to Middle Eastern topics. Catalogers at the following institutions have expressed a firm interest in contributing:
- American University in Cairo
- Ben-Gurion University of the Negev
- Biblioteca Alexandrina
- University of California, Santa Barbara
- University of California, Los Angeles
- University of Chicago
- University of Pennsylvania
