Cataloging Record Distribution Program


he U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO) has initiated the eighth year of the record distribution process, titled the Cataloging Record Distribution Program. The seventh year of the distribution began on October 1, 2016 and will run through September 30, 2017. Participation in the program includes 165 libraries, and currently there are a few slots open.

The main criteria to join the program is to be a depository library.  It is also required to profile to receive at least 10 records a month, retrieve the files promptly and load them into the library’s online catalog, and to participate in an annual survey.

Soon the slots will be taken.  However, a few libraries do drop during the year for various reasons, so if your library is interested, please ask to be on the waiting list.  Questions or comments about the project should be submitted to GPO using askGPO.

Technical support is provided by MARCIVE.  Existing CRDP libraries should contact MARCIVE with any questions about profiling, formatting, and receipt of files, as well as other technical concerns.
