Free Access to Cataloging Documentation
In early 2013, the Library of Congress announced that it is transitioning to online only publication of its cataloging documentation that was formerly available in print. On July 1, 2014, the sale of all remaining inventory of CDS print publications will end. The printing of new editions of subject heading and classification documentation has now ceased, and all new editions and updates will be freely available on LC’s Acquisitions and Bibliographic Access website
(http://www.loc.gov/aba). Documentation will continue to be available through Cataloger’s Desktop, LC’s subscription-based online documentation service.
