LC merging Acquisitions and Cataloguing

In June, 2007, Library Journal published the article LC merging cataloging and acquisitions by 2008

When I was at IFLA, Beacher Wiggins mentioned this merger in one of his presentations.  In fact, it may have already taken place just prior to IFLA.

This poses some interesting questions.  Will it be the cataloguers or aquisitions staff who stay?  Will there be retraining for all staff?  Will the emphasis be on aquisitions or cataloguing? How, exactly, with this merger work and what will the new department look like?  How will the workflow be organized?

I’m interested to see how this pans out and the type of reorganization involved.
