About the Bibliography Section


Contribute to the resources coordinated by the Bibliography Section. 

Common Practices for National Bibliographies: There is no single right way to produce a national bibliography, but there are many good ways. This resources covers the essential aspects of organisation, purpose and value, scoping and selection, resource description standards, and service delivery for a national bibliographic service. Revised and continually updated, you will find much to think about in assessing your own service.

National Bibliographic Register: With profiles contributed by national bibliographic agencies from around the world, the Register is ideal for understanding how other Bibliographies are organised, their services, and standards used. Our peers are a great source for ideas!
