The Music Cataloging Bulletin serves a three-fold purpose for all librarians concerned with the cataloging of musical materials:

First, it is a means by which the Library of Congress communicates quickly with music catalogers, making information available far sooner than in general LC cataloging publications, and reporting internal policy decisions that would not otherwise be published.
Second, it serves as a forum in which catalogers can discuss their problems and solutions, whether or not directly related to LC cataloging.
Third, it serves as one of many channels through which catalogers may communicate with LC, be the communication complaint, question or suggestion.
