The Electronic Cataloging in Publication (ECIP) Cataloging Partnership Program began in 2004. It is a collaboration between the Library of Congress (LC) Cataloging in Publication (CIP) Program, publishers, and libraries across the United States. System set up for the program proved challenging for library partners. A survey was conducted during February 8-March 6, 2018 to learn about ECIP partners’ ECIP set up experience. The findings show that communication and training documentation are two key elements for program to be effective and successful. The survey result helped LC CIP program develop new and improved ECIP system.
