IFLA Bibliography Section Communication Plan (2009)
Bibliographic control at a national level is the common goal of section members. However, the means available and conditions applicable vary from country to country. Requisites for performing bibliographic control - such as cataloging rules - may be standardized, but the way bibliographic control is achieved can only be influenced, rather than directed, by recommendations from the section.
Thus, rather than initiating specific standardization work on bibliographic control, the nature of the section’s activities will be advocative, supportive, advisory, inspirational and knowledge sharing. To support these activities, the Bibliography Section Standing Committee wishes to intensify communication within the standing committee, within the section, and with others who have an interest in bibliographic control.
