Tell me about Cataloguing in Publication (CIP)

British Library's CIP programme provides records about new and forthcoming books to the library book buying market in the UK. Libraries are then alerted to titles of interest to their users, and may make their purchasing decisions based on the information. The CIP programme is offered free of charge to participating publishers by Bibliographic Data Services Ltd (BDS). BDS create a CIP record for each title, including details such as author, title and publisher, projected date of publication, pagination, ISBN and price.
