Program for Cooperative Cataloging

The Library of Congress > Cataloging, Acquisitions > PCC > BIBCO

BIBCO participants contribute bibliographic records to international databases, meeting or exceeding the elements of the BIBCO Standard Record. BIBCO records include headings backed by complete authority work, both descriptive and subject.

December 31, 2014 will be the last date for contributing new BIBCO and CONSER records formulated according to AACR2. Starting January 1, 2015, all new PCC bibliographic record contributions must follow RDA, the BIBCO Standard Record, the CONSER Standard Record, and other PCC program guidelines for bibliographic description. For more about RDA implementation, see the RDA and PCC section on the PCC home page.
