About the Cataloguing Section

The Cataloguing Section analyses the functions of cataloguing activities for all types of material and media, including both bibliographic and authority information, for the benefit of all users. The Section proposes and develops cataloguing rules, guidelines and standards for bibliographic information taking into account the developing of electronic and networked digital environments in order to promote universal access to, and exchange of, bibliographic and authority information.

The Section has close relationships with many organizations and institutions including national cataloguing and standardization committees, various multinational organizations, various committees of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), especially with TC46–Information and Documentation, and with the Sections on Bibliography, Subject Analysis and Access, and Information Technology.
