The Library of Congress recently released the 2019-2020 revision of their Recommended Formats Statement. Of particular note are the updates to the “Moving Image Works” and “Audio Works” categories. If you have any questions, or comments on the statement, please don’t hesitate to share your feedback. Perhaps they will be valuable for next year’s revision!

If you have topics you would like to see highlighted, or suggestions for resources, please send them to Nariné Bournoutian at
