Library of Congress Merging Acquisitions and Cataloguing

Interesting reorganization has happened at the Library of Congress.  They have merged their acquisitions and cataloguing functions to create the Acquisitions and Bibliographic Access Directorate (ABA).

‘The new organizational structure … fully merges acquisitions and cataloging functions, streamlines workflows and deploys staff to take advantage of their unique language and subject skills,’ said ABA Director Beacher Wiggins. He noted that the new organization will be better designed and staffed to acquire new digital materials, which will be processed in the same work units as collections in printed and other formats.

The pebble has dropped. I wonder how many ripples this will create in the bibliographic pond?
