I would like to comment on the phrase "BIBCO, particularly Core, requires a
buy-in to a new approach to cataloging." I am glad you added the words
"particularly Core," making it clear exactly what you mean by a "new
approach." In fact, it is perfectly possible to make a valid contribution
to the PCC BIBCO program without "buying in" to the core approach. Last I
heard, BIBCO full records are still regarded as acceptable records,
certainly not somehow less worthy than core records, and "are identified as
PCC records and notable for their complete authority work (both descriptive
and subject), a national level call number ..., and at least one subject
access point," to quote the BIBCO page. The answer to question 6 on the
BIBCO FAQ makes it perfectly clear that libraries are not required to
contribute core level records in order to contribute to BIBCO. Therefore,
even if an institution does not buy the "core" approach it is still quite
possible to contribute to the BIBCO program. I certainly hope PCC isn't
going to try to exclude catalogers/institutions that wish to contribute
full records but do not "buy" the core.
