"AACR2 Compatible" Headings

This notice from the Cataloging Policy and Support Office was seen on the SLA catalog email list.
The Cataloging Policy and Support Office (CPSO), Library of Congress, has mounted on the Acquisitions and Bibliographic Access (ABA) Web site a PDF file containing an introductory statement and several draft revisions to Library of Congress Rule Interpretations (LCRI) that provide guidelines for a more relaxed policy in dealing with "AACR2 compatible" headings. This document may be retrieved directly from the ABA Web site as the first item under General, Descriptive Cataloging or through the URL. CPSO would like comments from the library community by close of business, April 23, 2007, so that the resulting revisions may be prepared for the next update of LCRI in May. Comments, as noted in the introductory statement should be sent to cpso@loc.gov.
