Library of Congress Genre/Form Authority Record for Artist Files

I’m so excited to see artist files recently appear as a Library of Congress genre and form heading. I think it does a nice job of pulling together authoritative sources to help define artist files. I particuarly like the succinct scope note, which does not attempt to supply an exhaustive list of formats that might be in an artist file (which I think is impossible!).

Thank you Sherman Clarke and the ARLIS/NA LC GFT Working Group/Cataloging Advisory Committee for facilitating this record. Please discuss!
