Cataloging in Publication Program
What is Eligible for the CIP Program?
CIP Program limits eligibility to titles that are most likely to be widely
acquired by the nation's libraries.
titles must be forthcoming monographs that include a U.S. place of publication on
the title page.
must also be published by a U.S.publisher that maintains editorial and production offices in a U.S.
city with a staff capable of answering substantive bibliographic questions that
may arise during the cataloging process.
these general guidelines, there are a number of categories of material
that are ineligible for the CIP Program.
