AACR at LC

The Library of Congress will implement the 2004 Update to the 2002 AACR2 on September 1, 2004. The 2004 AACR2 Update and its related Library of Congress Rule Interpretations (LCRI) will be available in Cataloger's Desktop on that date. Printed copies of the LCRIs have been distributed by the Cataloging Distribution Service.

The 2004 AACR2 Update contains the following changes:

  1. 1.0A1: The rule has been revised to begin with the concept of "What is being cataloged."
  2. 1.0A2: The rule has been revised to provide for the "basis of description" for all modes of issuance, including multipart monographs. (The following additional rule has been changed to reflect revised 1.0A2: 1.4D4.)
  3. 1.0A3: A new rule has been added to give a fuller explanation of "chief source of information." (The following additional rules have been changed to reflect revised 1.0A3: 1.1G3; 2.0H; 3.0H; 5.0H; 6.0H; 7.0H; 8.0H; 9.0H; 10.0H2; 10.0H3; 11.0H; 12.0H; 25.18A10e.)
