BIBCO Funnel Membership

A BIBCO funnel is a group of libraries that have joined together to contribute BIBCO Standard Records [PDF; 402 KB] to the utilities, and to enrich existing BIBCO records by adding access points, subject headings or classification numbers from a different scheme, and much more.

BIBCO funnels may be based on similarities among libraries, for example:

In some ways, funnel projects are mini-BIBCO operations in that they recruit, train, and review just as a PCC trainer does for single-institution participants.

BIBCO funnel membership is open to active independent NACO members. To request membership in an existing BIBCO funnel, please read Joining the BIBCO Program before submitting your BIBCO application form via your PCC Directory account.

To establish a new BIBCO funnel, please contact the BIBCO Coordinator.

For further information about BIBCO membership, please read the BIBCO Funnel FAQ or contact the BIBCO Coordinator.
