Cataloging in Publication: Moving Beyond the Print

SPEAKER: Karl Debus-López, Caroline Saccucci, Camilla Williams
EVENT DATE: 2014/11/13
RUNNING TIME: 35 minutes


The Cataloging in Publication (CIP) Program is now accepting e-books from major U.S. publishers to help build the Library of Congress' collections. This is a major step forward in management of e-book collections at the Library of Congress, as the process for ingesting CIP e-books will be used as a model for acquiring e-books from other acquisitions sources. Speakers discuss all elements of the CIP E-Books Program, including the application process, publisher participation, e-book metadata creation, and ingestion of the e-books into the Library's Content Transfer System to add to its collections.
