Revised Implementation Date for New BSRs:  October 1, 2010

 

PCC web pages to support the new BIBCO Standard Record models are being prepared.  It was not possible to post these documents to the PCC web pages and have them pass the quality assurance procedures by mid-August as originally announced.  The new BSR documentation will be posted by mid-September to support the new implementation date of October 1, 2010.

 

Text adapted from the original BSR Implemementation Announcement:

 

The PCC Policy Committee (PoCo) has approved the final reports submitted by Standing Committee on Standards Task Groups for BIBCO Standard Records for a variety of materials.  These reports appear on the PCC BIBCO homepage:  http://www.loc.gov/catdir/pcc/bibco/bibco.html

 

The PCC Steering Committee has approved October 1, 2010 as the new implementation date for the BIBCO Standard Record (BSR) guidelines for the following materials:

·         Textual Monographs (revised, originally titled BSR for Printed Books)

·         Rare Books

·         Electronic Resources

·         Cartographic Materials

·         Sound Recordings

·         Graphic Materials

·         Projected Visual Materials

 

By mid-September, the LC Cooperative Programs Section will post a more streamlined set of BSR implementation documents, retaining the Metadata Application Profiles (MAPs), but reducing elements of the Final Reports not needed in working guidelines.  As we move into the new BSR implementation phase:

  

 

PoCo extends its thanks to the Standing Committee on Standards and all Task Group chairs, members, and liaisons, whose names appear in the final reports.
