The Library of Congress Action Plan for the Bibliographic Control of Web Resources, available at http://www.loc.gov/catdir/bibcontrol/actionplan.html [Jan. 2002] has been updated to indicate the officials and organizations identified to take lead roles with regard to particular work items, insofar as they were known as of Dec. 19, 2001. Also elaborated are the list of candidate collaborators and the specification of individuals from within the Cataloging Directorate to serve as liaisons to those responsible for work items. In some cases, the charges for the action items have been modified to reflect suggestions received during the open comment period ending last Sept. 1.
Beacher J. Wiggins is currently pursuing discussions that should soon result in resolution of those lead roles currently described as "to be determined." Groups will be asked to initiate their work items as soon after the ALA Midwinter Meeting as possible, except for those items where a decision has been made to defer activity until later as indicated in the "status" line. The Cataloging Directorate will compile and begin to issue quarterly progress reports later this year.
