The Program For Cooperative Cataloging (PCC) (based at the Library of Congress) is (in their words):
…an international cooperative effort aimed at expanding access to library collections by providing useful, timely, and cost-effective cataloging that meets mutually-accepted standards of libraries around the world.
PCC published a five page document that includes their vision statement, mission statement, and a set of strategic directions for 2015-2017.
