Change in LSCM Cataloging Practice Provider-Neutral Model

The U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) is making a change to cataloging practice effective August 1, 2009. The Program for Cooperative Cataloging (PCC), Bibliographic Cooperative (BIBCO) has recently modified its cataloging practice for electronic resource monographs LTIS has evaluated the change in practice and has decided to adopt the BIBCO requirements for cataloging following the provider-neutral model. GPO will be applying this cataloging practice to all electronic resource monographs cataloged beginning on Monday, August 3, 2009.

GPO staff will not be modifying older records in the Catalog of U.S. Government Publications (CGP), only modifying existing records found in the OCLC database that will be added to the CGP.

This change supersedes GPO guidance on “Cataloging Digital Reproductions” issued on issued on May 20, 2009.

The BIBCO documentation identifies the specific MARC fields that will be changed or modified. For an example of a cataloging record cataloged under the new practice, see CGP system number: 000648752.

Suzanne Reinman, Regional Depository Coordinator at Oklahoma State University’s Edmon Low Library, and Janet Hines, Senior Administrative Support Specialist, rejoice in GPO’s switch to recycled paper for depository shipments. Suzanne first made the suggestion to GPO to make the switch, and GPO took action. Thanks, Suzanne!
