I failed to include in my previous response that I agree with Richard's
suggestion that we send a message to LC asking that items be moved more
quickly through the process at LC whenever we do not have the expertise
locally to complete them. Should a routine by established for this

Subject: LC "In-process" records procedure
As a result of the recent discussion on this list initiated by
Marty Joachim (Indiana University) in re: how to "move LC in-process"
records along, we at LC have been discussing the lack of a
mechanism to take advantage of upgrades performed in the
utilities by the BIBCO libraries and how this might be
Building on Richard Amelung's (St. Louis Univ. Law School)
suggestion to notify LC when an upgrade to an LC in-process
record has taken place, the following procedure is proposed:
Upon upgrading an LC in-process bibliographic record
the BIBCO library would send a message to their LC/NACO
Liaison with the standard text:
"PCC record for [LCCN] in [utility] under [utility control number]."
The use of this text would serve two purposes:
1. The standardized text would enable the LC liaison to cut and
paste the message with minimum change into the LC record.
2. The standardized text would enable LC to monitor the situation
Thoughts, suggestions, comments, etc. are welcome and may be sent
directly to me or to the list.
