Q. How long does it take to obtain Cataloging in Publication (CIP) data?
In order to receive the CIP data well in advance of publication, we urge publishers to submit their CIP Requests at least six months before printing deadlines. Some CIP Requests require developmental work to establish subject or name authority records, and this can take additional time.
If there are any concerns or questions regarding the timely receipt of the CIP data block, please contact your CIP Publisher Liaison.
