GPO to add 30 new libraries to CRDP for FY17
July 8, 2016
Eight years, ago, GPO initiated a pilot project in which MARCIVE was selected the vendor to provide a limited number of depository libraries with monthly cataloging records. The pilot for the Cataloging Record Districution Program (CRDP was a success, and we now supply records to 134 libraries of all types and sizes and with various library systems. There is NO charge to these libraries. Take a look at the current libraries here: http://home.marcive.com/cataloging-record-distribution-project
At first, libraries we spoke to were a bit suspicious to join a government-funded program, fearful that it would be de-funded and they would have to seek another alternative to cataloging the titles that they select from GPO. Now, there’s a waiting list! GPO will add an estimated 30 new libraries in FY17 which begins on October 1, 2017.
The criteria to become a participant is not difficult. For more information on the success of the program, or where to join the waiting list can be found at http://www.fdlp.gov/project-list/cataloging-record-distribution-program. Or you can contact us at [email protected].
