Hello!  I just received the attached invitation for libraries, museums, historical societies, and town clerk's offices to participate in the National Union Catalog of Manuscripts Collection. If you aren't able to open the attachment, here is a summary of the letter:

The Library of Congress' National Union Catalog of Manuscripts Collections (NUCMC) cooperative cataloging program invites all eligible U.S. archival and manuscript repositories to participate in its ongoing mission to provide and promote bibliographic access to the national documentary heritage. Participating repositories, such as local historical societies, museums, public libraries, or town clerk's offices, provide NUCMC with information describing their archival and manuscript holdings. NUCMC staff at the Library of Congress then use the information provided to create MARC (Machine Readable Cataloging) bibliographic records describing the repository's holdings in OCLC WorldCat. Additionally, anyone with access to the World Wide Web has free access to the entire OCLC archival and mixed collections file through the NUCMC Web site at http://www.loc.gov/coll/nucmc.

To be eligible to participate a repository must be located in the U.S. or its territories, regularly admit researchers, and lack the capability of entering its own manuscript cataloging into OCLC (Online Computer Library Center).  For more information, please go to the NUCMC page on the Library of Congress website (www.loc.gov/coll/nucmc<http://www.loc.gov/coll/nucmc>).  Please direct all questions to nucmc at loc.gov<mailto:nucmc at loc.gov> or 202-707-7954.
