Africana Subject Funnel Project
Annual and Semiannual Reports and other documents


The Africana Subject Funnel Project, begun spring 1995, falls under the Library of Congress Cooperative Cataloging Program known as SACO (Subject Authority Cooperative Program). It is a project of the Africana Librarians Council Cataloging Committee whose chairperson either serves as the funnel project coordinator or appoints the coordinator and is open to anyone who wishes to participate. The current coordinator is Margaret Hughes, Stanford University, who replaced longtime coordinator Joseph J. Lauer, Michigan State University, in Fall 2010.

Currently the funnel project is concentrating on the creation of new subject headings and the changing or updating of old subject headings. The Cataloging Committee hopes to be able to provide greater and better access to Africana materials through this project. To date a wide variety of headings has been proposed and accepted from "Bible stories, Hausa" to "Ulundi (Kwazulu, South Africa), Battle of, 1879."
