A prepublication cataloging system in which participating publishers provide galley proofs or front matter of new books to the national library or other centralized cataloging agency, for preparation of a bibliographic record which is returned to the publisher and printed on the verso of the title page. This program began at the Library of Congress in 1971 and is now worldwide.
