IFLA Satellite Meeting
Bibliography in the digital age
Thursday 9 August 2012 
Organised by the IFLA Bibliography Section and IFLA Cataloguing Section and 
hosted by Biblioteka Narodowa, Warsaw

Call for papers

Theme: Bibliography in the digital age
IFLA Bibliography Section and IFLA Cataloguing Section invite proposals for 
papers to be presented at a joint satellite meeting prior to the World Library 
and Information Congress (WLIC) 2012.

IFLA Bibliography Section endorsed in 2009 the publication National 
Bibliographies in the Digital Age: Guidance and New Directions. (IFLA Series on 
Bibliographic Control  ; 39) 

The publication was presented as follows: «The changes brought about by the 
World Wide Web and the explosion of electronic media have called into question 
many of the assumptions on which national bibliographies have been founded. The 
need was growing of a route map to navigate through uncharted territories. 
After a preparation period of several years,  IFLA's Bibliography Section 
endorsed this large set of guidelines. They seek to help national bibliographic 
agencies improve their bibliographic services.» 

The satellite meeting should be seen as a continuation of this publication and 
the purpose is to get an overview of the current situation, inspiration and 
update on how to deal with e-resources in national bibliographies, when the 
mission is to serve as an important information resource for selection, 
acquisition, cataloguing and verification in libraries and for the general 
public as well as a means for scientific research and publication statistics.

Which selection criteria are/could be used?  Which metadata are/should be 
produced and how?  Are the standards used for producing metadata applicable for 
this area? How can we reduce the costs of our efforts?

The proposals shall
reflect some of the issues in the publication
present best practices including explanations about their origins and reasons 
for adoption .

Areas of interest include subjects referring to the chapters of the publication:

·         Value of national bibliographies: Use and users (both humans and 
·         Selection principles (scope of the national bibliography, electronic 
resources and "traditional" resources)
·         Cataloguing (Which metadata are to be provided? From which sources? 
How does that correspond with integration and sharing metadata with other 
interested parties? What about cataloguing rules when metadata are produced 
outside libraries?)
·         Functionality and interface (The consequenses of linked and linked 
open data - what is a record produced by the national bibliography?)
·         Organisation and management of national bibliographies (for example 
connections with e-legal deposit)
·         Cooperation with publishers: Integration and sharing of metadata for 

Be aware that the question about how to define a bibliography today is a topic 
of the open programme of the Bibliography Sections on IFLA in Helsinki, so 
please don't focus on that aspect at the satellite meeting.
