Highlights of the LC report by Barbara Tillett

USPS delivery to LC began on March 4, 2002. Much of the mail received since March 4 appears to have suffered damage from the irradiation process. Mail to the Library is now delivered to an off-site mail handling facility in Prince George's County, Md., where it can be double-checked for safety before it arrives on Capitol Hill. It is expected that normal levels of mail receipts at the Library will not resume for several months.

LC will implement AACR2 Amendments 2002 on December 1, 2002. Revisions to the LCRIs related to the amendments will be published in late summer. Discussions are still ongoing about LC and PCC practice for a few rules; that information will be available on the web site of LC's CPSO in August and then will be included in the fall update to the LCRIs.

There is new guidance for how to distinguish between Bosnian, Croatian and Serbian languages available on the CPSO web site.

LC is providing web access to LC authority data on a trial basis, beginning July 1, 2002. Name, subject, and title authority records will be available to search, display, and download at this address: For more information, see
