PROPOSED CHANGES TO LCRIs STEMMING FROM THE
PCC STANDING COMMITTE ON STANDARDS (SCS)
CROSS REFERENCE TASK GROUP

INTRODUCTION

The SCS appointed a Cross Reference Task Group, which submitted a report to the SCS dated December 17, 1999. That report may be found at the following address:

http://www.loc.gov/catdir/pcc/xreftgfinal.html

The SCS response, dated October 1, 2000 may be found at:

http://www.loc.gov/catdir/pcc/xreftgscsresp.html

The Cross Reference Task Group Report recommends twelve changes relating to LCRI's. Their disposition by the SCS is as follows:

  1. four are in conjunction with proposed rule changes and will not be acted upon until the rules changes are accepted by the Joint Steering Committee and published;
  2. two were tabled by the SCS pending further investigations;
  3. one was rejected on the advice of the NACO Hebraica Funnel and the NACO Arabic Funnel, which propose instead a different change (part of the present package);
  4. one was rejected but is being handled through a change in LC practice (part of the present package);
  5. two were rejected;
  6. two were accepted and are part of the present package.

The background and rationale for the proposed changes may be found in the Task Group Report cited above. The disposition of the proposals may be found in the SCS response cited above.

PROPOSED CHANGES

The proposed changes are each preceded by the recommendation from the Task Group Report cited above. They are available in PDF format (requires Adobe Acrobat Reader) and WordPerfect 8 for download.
