Berandine has an excellent comment this week on the govdoc-l mailing list and I encourage you to read it in case you missed it.
- Re: Cataloging Service Bulletin by Bernadine Abbott Hoduski, Discussion of Government Document Issues, Mon, 3 Oct 2005
Her comments relate specifically to the Library of Congress’s “divided loyalties between making money and promoting the library community and complete cataloging” but notes that this is a general problem of title 44. The issue at hand “illustrates the slippery slope of title 44 when it allows LC and others an exception to chapter 19 in order to be self sustaining.”
