RDA Blog: LC-PCC Best Practices Guidelines

The RDA Blog has a collection of short, sharp posts on best practice LC-PCC guidelines.

Note that the RDA best practice guidelines for RMIT/LR&A are those set out by managers such as Ebe Kartus.

So if you find skimming through the posts handy, they are available on in this post. But follow the RMIT/LR&A guidelines when cataloguing items for the library here as those instructions are RMIT/LR&A best practice.

What does LC-PCC stand for?

The Library of Congress and the Program for Cooperative Cataloging are pleased to announce a title change of the “Library of Congress Policy Statements” to “Library of Congress-Program for Cooperative Cataloging Policy Statements” (LC-PCC PSs) effective with the October 2012 release of the RDA Toolkit. The new title reflects the ongoing collaboration of LC and PCC in adopting a single set of policy statements, with clear labels indicating any differences in application. Adding “PCC Practice” statements has already begun, and will be ongoing until completed; developing new policy statements, negotiating changes to existing statements, etc., will be an ongoing activity shared by LC and PCC.

Current Library of Congress-Program for Cooperative Cataloging Policy Statements (LC-PCC PSs) are freely available as part of the RDA Toolkit.

You can find the full LC-PCCs in the RDA Toolkit under the Resources tab.
