Program for Cooperative Cataloging

The Library of Congress > Cataloging, Acquisitions > PCC > Standing Committee on Applications


Task Groups


Under the guidance of the PCC Policy Committee, the Standing Committee on Applications (SCA) is charged to identify and address issues related to applications, technologies, and automated processes that support the Program. SCA cooperates with and elicits support from related organizations—the Program participants, national libraries, vendors, standards organizations, and others—with a focus on metadata creation, enhancement, management, use, and reuse. It maintains and shares best practices relating to users, applications, technologies, and automated workflows, as they relate to the mission of the Program, in collaboration with the Standing Committees on Standards and Training. SCA will support external initiatives that further the strategic directions of the PCC.
