Cataloguing in Publication
CIP Logo


Cataloguing in Publication (CIP) is a voluntary program of cooperation between publishers and libraries. It enables the cataloguing of books BEFORE they are published, and the prompt distribution of this cataloging information to booksellers and libraries. The Canadian CIP Program is coordinated by Library and Archives Canada.

CIP Request Forms

The CIP Program is divided into two sections: Trade Publishing and Government Publishing. Please select the appropriate link to apply for CIP.
