AACR2 Amendments 2002 Implementation

LC at ALA Annual 2002


AACR2 Amendments 2002 Implementation

In response to concerns raised by our colleagues and constituents, I have determined that the Library of Congress will delay implementation of AACR2 Amendments 2002 until Dec. 1, 2002. We are postponing from the previously-announced September 1, 2002, date due to the delay in the publication of the amendments package by ALA Publishing and concerns expressed from constituents about adequate time needed to schedule training before implementation. We had chosen the September implementation date to accommodate requests for LC to implement as soon as possible. The additional lead time should give the various communities that will adopt the new amendments sufficient time to prepare.

Revisions to the -Library of Congress Rule Interpretations_ related to the amendments package will be published in late summer. Discussions are still ongoing about LC and Program for Cooperative Cataloging practice for a few rules; I want LC practice and PCC practice to be harmonized. Information related to bringing these practices into alignment will be available on the Web site of LC's Cataloging Policy and Support Office, with links to the PCC Web site, in August. This information will then be included in the fall update to the Library of Congress Rule Interpretations.

Any further concerns should be addressed to me or to the Cataloging Policy and Support Office ([email protected]) Beacher Wiggins ([email protected]) Director for Cataloging Library of Congress
