Welcome to ConC!

Welcome to the web site of MELA's Committee on Cataloging (ConC). It is our mission to identify and consider cataloging issues, to make recommendations, to provide training and support via workshops and online documents, and to cooperate with other institutions and bodies on matters related to descriptive cataloging and subject cataloging, classification, and content designation of materials from and about the Middle East.
