Introduction

The following is intended as an alternative name authority file to be used in the cataloging of sound recordings of Hispanic popular music.  It may also prove useful for reference and as a selection aid for library sound collections.  Though content is restricted primarily to the world of current popular music, names of some other entertainers will be found.

There has been a need for such a combination reference work/authority file for some time since national (U.S.) sources of bibliographic and authority data seldom provide adequate data for cataloging these materials, or for use with Hispanic audiences.  This should be obvious by comparing the many differences between the data presented here and that found in many library databases.  Libraries hoping to provide even minimum level cataloging data will find it necessary to go beyond the limitations found in today's cataloging environment.   Libraries depending on the national name authority file (cited as NAF in some of the entries here) will find NAF to be a real barrier to the provision of adequate library services because of the incomplete and inaccurate nature of so much of the Hispanic materials data contained there.   Given the current institutional environment with its strong, deeply ingrained resistance to reform, it would be unrealistic to expect NAF to develop into a viable cataloging tool for these materials.   Hopefully this new authority file will provide libraries a tool with which to begin anew in a quest to provide adequate library services for Hispanic audiences.

Library catalogs can send positive messages to users.  Catalogs and collections showing awareness and respect for the language and culture of users should be goals of all libraries serving Hispanic communities.   There is no reason libraries can't develop such services;   indeed, learning to use existing resources wisely, working cooperatively in effective ways, implementing working, library specific commitments to diversity, and reacting to changing needs and conditions should be imperatives for today's libraries.  Hispanic audiences deserve quality library services, and the ideas, technology, and skills to support vastly improved, potentially self-supporting programs are available.  Let us provide these programs.

Introducción

En este documento electrónico intento ofrecer una lista de nombres para bibliotecarios (especialmente los que se dedican a la catalogación) y otros que necesitan información básica sobre las personas y grupos que forman parte del mundo de entretenimiento latino, principalmente en el campo de la música popular de norteamérica de los años recientes.   Además de los nombres, si es posible, país de origen, al menos una obra citada (CIT), año de nacimiento, etc.  Referencias desde nombres alternativos: una x debajo de un nombre significa un nombre alternativo o no usado en esta lista.  Para algunos nombres ofrezco reseñas, o sugerencias para elegir materias.

Las fuentes tradicionales para bibliotecarios carecen de ese tipo de información, o caracen de información confiable.  La falta de información es, por supuesto, un reflejo de otros problemas de las bibliotecas: la falta de empleados bilingьes y biculturales de habla hispana, y la falta de materias y servicios adecuados para la población estadounidense de habla hispana.

Aunque nuestras reglas para la catalogación sean adecuadas para crear información bibliográfica adecuada en español, y hasta exigen tal creación, no tenemos información adecuada.  Con este documento espero llamar la atención a las condiciones actuales, y ser un impulso para cambios positivos.  Este es un documento en desarrollo.

Sobre el autor


Soy bibliotecario de habla hispana con mucha experiencia en la catalogación de materias en español.  No me considero un experto en la música latina (pero sí soy músico y aficionado de la música latina) y mucho menos un escolar del idioma, pero mis experiencias me dan la seguridad de saber que la información ofrecida es importante y necesitada.  Soy participante en los sistemas nacionales (EEUU) para información bibliográfica, pero con el tiempo me he dado cuenta de que sería de más utilidad crear un nuevo recurso en vez de intentar salvar los sistemas actuales que se encuentran en un estado deplorable de crisis bibliográfica en el campo de la música popular.  Espero evitar los problemas vistos en otros sistemas con un control adecuado de calidad, pero también reconozco que una lista totalmente sin errores no será posible.


Genre codes: C=Classical; F=Folk; J=Jazz; MR=Mariachi; P=Pop; R=Rock; SW=SpokenWord; TM=TexMex; TR=Tropical


NOTE: Genre codes are offered as a general guide; though many performers qualify for additional codes, for most just one or two codes are assigned

From Puerto Rico; bilingual; a more expected orthography for earlier form of name would be Michaelángelo, but pparently the composite name was to be written as cited; the later name probably prounounced as Michelángelo, but apparently not considered a Spanish name so written without accent; this artist appears to have released three albums as of 2002, the first under Michaelangelo (possibly only in Puerto Rican releases), later as Michelangelo; several other artists have used the same name and should not be confused with this artist

Note: The above heading is included here only to clarify what might be mistaken for a name heading; catalogers should observe Rule 21.4C1 in the Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules (1998) regarding fictitious attribution
Though El Morro is sometimes described as appropriate for children, the sound recording described below includes adult themes (sex, drugs, alcohol, bodily functions), and would not be appropriate for juvenile collections in libraries.  Expressions including ¡no manches! and andas bien guarijuano [sic] illustrate the recording's style of humor and use of street language.  The cover art also hints at content: a smiling, seemingly innocent El Morro is seated on what is seen at second glance to be a toilet.  Other releases are labelled specifically for children, including Puras para niños. 1 (p2001)
