The LCF is a set of library interoperability standards which defines a framework for the communication of data between self-service and other library terminal applications to and from library management systems. 

BIC membership includes the right to sit on and influence the work of the BIC LCF Review Group.

The BIC LCF Review Group reports into the BIC Libraries committee and overseas the work of the LCF Technical Panel. In summary this review group is responsible for influencing and providing industry feedback with regards to the implementation, development, and promotion of the LCF standard within the library sector. The group collaborates on best practice recommendations and/or issues, industry training requirements and awareness for the scheme. The group also gives and receives regular updates and feedback to/from the BIC Libraries committee to ensure all member requirements are being heard and responded to. 

The LCF Review Group meets every quarter, and its current members include:

  • Axiell
  • Bibliotheca
  • Ceridwen
  • Civica
  • D-Tech International
  • Education Software Solutions
  • Insight Media Internet Ltd
  • Lyngsoe
