I'd like to know how others are dealing with in-process records found in the LC database.  Do you just put your book aside and wait?  Do you have a time limit before cataloging an item yourself?  What's a reasonable period of time to wait before doing it yourself?  I have in hand a work by a 15th century Sicilian and written in the Sicilian dialect.  It would be easy to go ahead and finish it off myself; it's been in process at LC since April.  Note to LC folks: Do you routinely search again for copy before completing an in-process record?
