Program for Cooperative Cataloging Response to On the Record: Report 
of the Library of Congress Working Group on the Future of Bibliographic Control

The Program for Cooperative Cataloging's Policy Committee (PCC PoCo) 
supports the recommendations outlined for the PCC in the Library of 
Congress Working Group's final report.  Because PCC leaders provided 
testimony at the Working Group's public forums, and because 
representatives from PCC institutions were members of the Working 
Group itself, there is a close alignment between the report and the 
PoCo's own planning efforts.  Indeed, many of the recommendations are 
identical to, or closely aligned with, items already listed in the 
PCC Strategic Directions document, available online at: 

The PoCo and the Steering Committee will continue to evaluate the 
bibliographic control landscape, seeking out ways to foster greater 
participation and cooperation across all types of libraries.   PCC's 
position as an international program gives it a unique ability to 
meet many of the goals outlined in the Working Group's report.  We 
welcome input from member institutions on ways to expand 
participation in our constituent programs and meet our goal of being 
a global leader in the international metadata community.
