About three weeks ago at the Library of Congress in Washington, DC a presentation titled, “Cataloging in Publication: Moving Beyond the Print” took place.
A video recording of the event took place and is now available here and is also embedded below.
It’s one of many in a series titled, “Digital Future and You.”
Here’s how LC describes the presentation:
The Cataloging in Publication (CIP) Program is now accepting e-books from major U.S. publishers to help build the Library of Congress’ collections. This is a major step forward in management of e-book collections at the Library of Congress, as the process for ingesting CIP e-books will be used as a model for acquiring e-books from other acquisitions sources. Speakers discuss all elements of the CIP E-Books Program, including the application process, publisher participation, e-book metadata creation, and ingestion of the e-books into the Library’s Content Transfer System to add to its collections.
- Karl Debus-Lopez is chief of the U.S. Programs, Law & Literature Division at the Library of Congress. The division catalogs materials coming through the Copyright Office, the Cataloging in Publication (CIP) program, and the ISSN application process; provides CIP, CYAC (Children’s and Young Adults’ Cataloging), Dewey Decimal Classification, and ISSN infrastructure support; and catalogs law materials.
- Caroline Saccucci is the Dewey program manager and acting CIP program manager in the U.S. Programs, Law & Literature Division at the Library of Congress.
- Camilla Williams is a CIP program specialist in the U.S. Programs, Law & Literature Division at the Library of Congress.
The presentation runs 35 minutes and a text transcript is available.
