The practices outlined in the guidelines are utilized in the creation of bibliographic (MARC) records, which are made available through the Catalog of U.S. Government Publications (CGP), an online catalog of U.S. Government information products. In addition, these bibliographic records are available to Federal depository libraries, other libraries, partners, and commercial vendors through various distribution mechanisms. Bibliographic records produced using these guidelines and other recognized standards and practices are also made available through OCLC , a worldwide bibliographic network. Other metadata schemes, such as ONIX and Dublin Core, are also utilized by GPO for describing U.S. Government information.
