Q. How can I obtain information about cataloging services such as Cataloging in Publication (CIP), International Standard Serial Number (ISSN), and other services that supply standard numbers for publications?


"Resources for … Publishers" is available on LC's Web site, listing a variety of cataloging-related services for publishers. These services include the:

  • International Standard Serial Number (ISSN) for serial publications,
  • Preassigned Control Number (PCN) and Cataloging in Publication (CIP) for books,
  • Copyright Registration,
  • Copyright Mandatory Deposit, and
  • International Standard Music Number.

Information about the International Standard Book Number (ISBN), a service coordinated by the R.R. Bowker Company, is also included in "Resources for … Publishers." Registration information, application forms, and general information about Copyright is available through "Resources for … Publishers" as well.
