Library of Congress Working Group report

I know there's something here to report, but I'm too busy...maybe you can read and report... <p> <a href="http://newsbreaks.infotoday.com/nbReader.asp?ArticleId=40394">The Library of Congress and the Future of Bibliographic Control: Working Group Report</a> <p> "Last November, the Library of Congress (LC) established a Working Group on the Future of Bibliographic Control (www.loc.gov/bibliographic-future). It’s staffed by leading research librarians as well as executives from key private sector players, such as OCLC, Google, and Microsoft." <p> <b>There's a pdf of the report</b> and they welcome comments at www.loc.gov/bibliographic-future/contact.) Snail-mail or fax written submissions to Olivia M. A. Madison, Dean of the Library, 302 Parks Library, Iowa State University, Ames, IA 50011-2140, 515 294-2112 (fax). <p> Interesting notes: "The 19 recommendations in this theme focus on eliminating MARC," and finding some standard for catalog metadata or tagging ("Library data must be usable outside of the catalog").
