Description

The first comprehensive examination of bibliographic databases on a worldwide scale, this important new volume focuses on the development and future of, as well as the transitions within large scale national and international bibliographic databases. Professionals discuss the linking of national bibliographic databases. On a broader scale, several chapters examine different types of bibliographic databases outside of North America in their various stages of development. Experts address some of the important issues connecting the components of international bibliographic databases, including communication protocols between various bibliographic databases and authority control.
