As of September 30, 2008, the CIP program will no longer accept applications for microforms, phonics books, repackaged editions, and tie-ins.

Phonics books are curriculum books generally used in classrooms rather than libraries and they help in the learning of reading and spelling based on the use of phonics.

Repackaged editions are formerly published works that when republished are mainly distinguishable from the previous edition by packaging; e.g., a set of volumes previously published individually then republished as a box set.

"Tie-ins" are generally (though not exclusively) children's books, that are derived from movies, tv shows, comics, video games, toys, food, etc.
