The workshop will also include lectures and practical exercises on how to form entries and cross references, types of authority files, and how to create each type, such as authority files for names, entities, geographical names, and subject headings.

The lectures will be delivered by BA technical management specialists. The lectures will be held 28–30 September 2015. To register for the course, please visit the International Librarianship Training Program website before Sunday, 27 September 2015.
