All webinars are one hour in length and begin at 11am Pacific, noon Mountain, 1pm Central, and 2pm Eastern time.
Description: In July 2015 the Library of Congress will implement a new layout to the Cataloging in Publication Data Block which appears on the verso of the title page of print books and on the Copyright page of electronic books. The new layout is the result of an analysis of survey results done in 2014 that asked institutions what should be kept, added, or removed from the CIP Data Block to meet the needs of the twenty-first century bibliographic environment. There are numerous changes to the layout including the use of labels to clearly identify the different components within the block, addition of RDA and electronic data elements, and a URL that links directly to the LC catalog for easy download of bibliographic records. This webinar will introduce attendees to the new CIP Data Block, including instruction on how to interpret the elements of the Data Block for cataloging purposes…
Karl Debus-Lopez is the Chief of the U.S. Programs, Law, and Literature Division at the Library of Congress.
Caroline Saccucci is the Dewey Program Manager and Acting Program Manager of the Cataloging in Publication Program.
