The New Books Project

The New Books project is a Library of Congress Cataloging Directorate initiative designed to provide the library community and general public access to a rich source of information about soon-to-be-published and just-published books. New Books will enable publishers to provide data elements which the system will use to automatically create a New Books record. These records will be posted on the Library of Congress homepage, immediately available for readers to access worldwide.

New Books will also enable U.S. libraries (and potentially libraries worldwide) to be listed in a drop-down menu that will enable readers to immediately email their local library and request books of interest. With New Books :
