Q. Is cataloging completed when a title is deposited for copyright registration?
Items submitted for copyright are cataloged in the U.S. Copyright Office by catalogers using the Copyright Cataloging Rules. These rules are developed and maintained within the Office and specifically address facts about copyright ownership of a work that include basic bibliographic information. Full bibliographic cataloging is undertaken by the Library's cataloging units outside of the Copyright Office for those copyright deposits that are selected for inclusion in the Library's collection.
