Re: [BKARTS] ISBN, CIP & bar code



>Number' CIP means 'Cataloging in Progress' (a Library of Congress

A minor nit: It's Cataloging in Publication. More information can be
had at http://cip.loc.gov/cip/

Note that some (much?) small press work is not eligible for CIP.
Resources are prioritized for works "likely to be acquired by
libraries". Most small press work, when it makes it into a library's
collection at all, is shelved in special collections and is
frequently not catalogued by LOC in the first place.
