Yes, the Library of Congress freely admits fallibility. And wants you to be able to tell them, quickly and conveniently, when they make a mistake.

Report either bibliographic or authority records on this online form. Please note the required fields and the information about projected publication dates and pre-publication records.


A must-check site to know what’s going on at the Library of Congress: the home page of the Acquisitions and Bibliographic Access Directorate. (Some of us have been around long enough to catch ourselves occasionally referring to the Cataloging Directorate; the acquisitions and cataloging departments were merged in 2008.) This page links to a great number of resources; we’ll examine some of them in subsequent posts.
