The final version of revised LCRI 22.1B (determining the name by which a person is commonly known) has been posted on the CPSO Web site at http://www.loc.gov/catdir/cpso/22_1b.html
CPSO extends its appreciation to all those who commented and made suggestions for changes, especially the cartographic community. Their request that cartographers, engravers, and other persons responsible for the creation of cartographic works be treated in the same manner as authors who write texts is a welcome simplification. We hope the simplified, revised guidelines will now relieve catalogers from agonizing over how much research to undertake when the item in hand contains information sufficient to establish a personal name uniquely.
This LCRI will be made available by CDS and will also be published in update 3 of Cataloger's Desktop, August 1, 2006. Catalogers may begin to implement this LCRI immediately.
