New LCGFT genre headings
Library of Congress Genre/Form Terms for Library and Archival Materials (LCGFT), should be formally separated from Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH). The current coding for the genre/form authority records indicates that the terms are from LCSH, not LCGFT. The LCCNs are prefixed by “sh” and 008/11 is set to “a,” Library of Congress Subject Headings. Authority records for LCGFT terms will be coded with the LCCN prefix “gf” and 008/11 is set to z and the addition of the 040 $f: lcgft For more information.
