THE IDENTIFICATION OF DATA ELEMENTS IN BIBLIOGRAPHIC RECORDS. FINAL REPORT OF THE SPECIAL PROJECT ON DATA ELEMENTS FOR THE SUBCOMMITTEE ON MACHINE INPUT RECORDS (SC-2) OF THE SECTIONAL COMMITTEE ON LIBRARY WORK AND DOCUMENTATION (Z-39) OF THE U.S.A. STANDARDS INST.
AVRAM, HENRIETTE D.; CURRAN, ANNE T.
IMPLEMENTATION OF A NATIONAL OR REGIONAL NETWORK OF BIBLIOGRAPHIC INFORMATION WILL REQUIRE A BASIC STANDARD FOR THE IDENTIFICATION AND REPRESENTATION OF THE ELEMENTS IN THE DATA BASE. THE PURPOSE OF THIS SPECIAL PROJECT, DONE FOR THE SUBCOMMITTEE ON MACHINE INPUT RECORDS, WAS TO PROVIDE THE SUBCOMMITTEE WITH BACKGROUND INFORMATION WHICH WOULD BE HELPFUL TO THEM IN DETERMINING WHICH DATA ELEMENTS SHOULD BE IDENTIFIED IN MACHINE READABLE RECORDS. ONLY BIBLIOGRAPHIC ELEMENTS WHICH APPEARED IN RECORDS FOR A WORK RATHER THEN IN THE WORK ITSELF WERE CONSIDERED, AND ONLY THE MAJOR FORMS OF MATERIALS--BOOKS, SERIALS, JOURNAL ARTICLES, TECHNICAL REPORTS, AND CONFERENCE PROCEEDINGS, WERE COVERED. THE RESULTING ENUMERATION AND DISCRIPTION OF THE ELEMENTS ARE GROUPED ACCORDING TO THE FORMAT OF A LIBRARY CATALOG CARD WITHOUT ANY INDICATION OF USE. SPECIAL PROBLEMS WHICH WOULD BE ENCOUNTERED IN THE IDENTIFICATION AND TAGGING OF THE ELEMENTS IN EACH OF THE MAJOR FORMS ARE DISCUSSED AND THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN PRESENT PRACTICE AND FUTURE IMPLEMENTATION IS CONSIDERED. THE REPORT ITSELF WAS ISSUED AS A WORKING TOOL FOR THE SUBCOMMITTEE AND IS NOT INTENDED TO BE A STANDARD NOR A RECOMMENDATION FOR A STANDARD.
