Summary

This manual outlines objectives, functions, and methods for establishing national bibliographic control as part of the development of a worldwide system for the control and exchange of bibliographic information. Chapters cover: (1) definitions of bibliographic control and related concepts including Universal Bibliographic Control (UBC) and national imprints, collections, and authors; (2) the process of acquiring national publications by means of legal deposit; (3) issues related to producing a national bibliography, including its physical format, coverage, and record requirements, and the establishment of a cataloging-in-publication program; (4) the preparation of bibliographic records, with emphasis on types of cataloging rules, the use of headings and entry words, and subject classification; (5) participation in international numbering schemes, including the International Standard Book Number (ISBN), International Standard Serial Number (ISSN), and other international numbering systems; and (6) additional tools of bibliographic control, particularly union catalogs and national processing centers. Appendices present an outline of the objectives and functions of a national bibliographic agency within an international framework, and samples of related documents and national bibliographic records. Annotated bibliographic notes and a list of acronyms and abbreviations are also provided. (ESR)
