There has been a recent flurry of messages in the electronic media about
incorporating AACR2 into catalogers' helpers, finding aids, and other
electronic applications.  There are a number of projects of this nature
under way, including one under joint development between the American
Library Association and the Library of Congress to produce AACR in a
machine-readable form.

Anybody considering developing such a product using AACR2 and its revisions
should be aware that AACR is under copyright.  The American Library
Association is the holder of the U.S. copyright for this publication and as
