If you have any questions, you can use the "Free consultation" button, which would put you in touch with a services representative.
What is an LCCN assignment?
Check out http://www.weberbooks.com/2009/05/how-to-get-a-library-of-congress-control-number-lccn-for-your-book.html for more info on how to get a LCCN. Highly recommended for making your book more visible to libraries.
Thanks a lot James Bishop. This link is very useful.
I'll probably apply for Library of Congress Card Numbers for my books in English. I am not sure my books in French would interest them.
By the way, I also declare all my books and send them one copy, as required by law, to the Bibliothèque Nationale de France.They generally answer within 10 days.
The problem with these numbers is that you have to start a new edition (a revision) of your book to add them to the copyright page.
