Library of Congress Catalog Card Number 79-640907.

ISSN 0163-7363 Key title: Catalog of copyright entries. Fourth series. Part 8. Renewals.

For sale by the Superintendent of Documents, U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, D.C. 20402.


The Catalog of Copyright Entries for 1978 begins a new series. Published by authority of section 707 of Title 17 of the United States Code, this new Fourth Series coincides with the implementation of the Copyright Act of 1976 (Public Law 94-553).

The Catalog is divided into eight parts. Five of these parts correspond to the administrative classes established under section 408(c) of Title 17 of the United States Code. Three additional parts consist of categories of works within these classes: maps, motion pictures/filmstrips, and serials/ periodicals. The table at the end of this preface shows the organization of the Catalog and the registration class designators. The parts of the Catalog in which each entry is published are determined, in some cases, by both the registration class and the nature of the work covered by the registration. Some issues, therefore, will contain entries for registrations in classes in addition to those designated in the table.

All works listed in the Catalog are entered under title, with an index of authors, claimants, and other names associated with the work. Filing is word by word. Titles which consist only of special characters are at the head of the Catalog, followed by titles beginning with Arabic numerals filed in numerical sequence. Each entry includes a bibliographic description followed by data relating to the copyright claim (name of the copyright claimant as given in the application for registration, date of creation, date of registration, copyright registration number, etc.). Except for renewals and supplementary registrations, the descriptive portion of the entries is formulated in a modified ISBD (International Standard Bibliographic Description) format. Some de

viations from the prescribed format were necessary to better meet the needs of the Copyright Office.

Entries for published and unpublished material are interfiled. Entries for supplementary registrations are interfiled with entries for basic registrations, and should be consulted in conjunction with the entry for the original registration. Entries pertaining to original copyrights secured before January 1, 1978 but not registered until on or after January 1, 1978 are interfiled with entries pertaining to original copyrights secured under Public Law 94-553. Entries appearing in the Catalog for the first time which pertain to pre-1978 registrations are filed and indexed in a separate section at the end of the Catalog.

Information pertaining to changes of copyright ownership is not included in the Catalog, but a search of Copyright Office files may be requested from the Register of Copyrights. A fee for the search and report will be estimated at the statutory rate of $10 per hour. For each registration listed, except for renewals and supplementary registrations, there has been deposited one or two copies or phonorecords (or in some instances other identifying material) of the work in accordance with the provisions contained in section 408 of Title 17 of the United States Code. Such deposits may be selected for inclusion in the collections of the Library of Congress. Library of Congress printed cards are available for many of the published works so selected. Orders for such cards or inquiries concerning them should be addressed to the Cataloging Distribution Service Division, Building 159, Navy Yard Annex, Washington, D.C. 20541.

For a more complete description of the contents of this issue of the Catalog see the Introduction.

Orders for individual issues, subscriptions for one or more parts, or for the complete Catalog, should be sent to the Superintendent of Documents, U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, D.C. 20402.

The Copyright Office welcomes inquiries, suggestions, and comments on the content and organization of the Catalog. Such communications should be addressed to the Chief of the Cataloging Division, Copyright Office, Library of Congress, Washington, D.C. 20559.
