On January 27th from 1-2 pm and Februrary 24th from 1-2 pm, please join Connie Harbison, Chair of BISG’s Subject Codes Committee, for guidance and discussions centered around migrating from Juvenile Fiction (JUV) and Juvenile Non-Fiction (JNF) to YAF (Young Adult Fiction) to YAN (Young Adult Non-Fiction). 446 of the new BISAC codes are in the YAF/YAN category.
You will learn:
- Guidelines and best practices
- Juvenile vs Young Adult
- How to use the mapping table
- Mapping examples
- Examples of how to manually assign a more specific YA code
- Benefits and risks of adopting the new codes
You can get our basic one-to-one mapping table JUV/JNF to YAN/YAF if you’ve already downloaded the new edition. If you haven’t downloaded the BISAC Subject Headings: 2015 Edition, then please follow the link to do so. Contact Connie at Connie.Harbison@baker-taylor.com with any questions.
Remember, all BISG members register for webinars and receive the BISAC codes for free, so if you haven’t become a member yet, now is a good time to take advantage of this benefit. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
