|Subject Codes Committee|
BISG's Subject Codes Committee maintains the BISAC Subject Headings, Merchandising Themes and Regional Themes. The committee also provides guidance on the implementation and use of the lists by publishers, retailers and other interested parties. The committee is chaired by Connie Harbison of Baker & Taylor.
Why work on Subject Codes?
Many businesses within the North American book industry, including most major publishers, as well as retailers and distributors that include Amazon, Baker & Taylor, Barnes & Noble, Bookscan, Bowker, Indiebound, Indigo, Ingram, use the headings in a variety of ways. Some libraries are also utilizing the BISAC Subjects to facilitate the browsing experience for patrons, an area the committee may study further.
