Subect: LCRI Draft for 1.11A on Non-microform and electronic

PCC and CONSER lists:

The ALCTS-CCS Heads of Cataloging Discussion Group at the recent ALA
Midwinter meeting in San Antonio considered the cataloging treatment
of electronic reproductions of works previously published in printed
form (particularly the "eBooks" reproduced by NetLibrary, Inc.). As a
result of that discussion, OCLC has asked LC to revise LCRI 1.11A to
encompass explicitly digitized manifestations of works previously
published in printed form.

The LCRI has been revised and is now being presented to LC staff as a
DRAFT.  That draft and a cover message explaining the background for
the proposed change is also being made available to PCC and CONSER
members and may be found at:

Comments on the proposed LCRI should be sent to [log in to unmask] by
Friday, April 28, 2000.
