Scope of the CIP Program


The CIP program limits eligibility to titles that are most likely to be widely acquired by the nation's libraries. These titles must be forthcoming monographs that include a U.S. place of publication on the title page. They must also be published by a U.S. publisher that maintains editorial and production offices in a U.S. city with a staff capable of answering substantive bibliographic questions that may arise during the cataloging process.

The following are ineligible:
