National Bibliography in a Multi-National State as Accomplished in the USSR.
Vesirova, L. A.
Soviet national bibliographies register all types of publications printed in the Soviet Union regardless of the language in which they were published. These bibliographies are known as state bibliographies. This report dwells on the characteristics of the organization of a state bibliographic system in a multi-national socialistic state. The system of current state bibliographies which include approximately 40 publications (or "chronicles"), gives a clear view of printed matter in the Soviet Union. This system of "chronicles" ensures full registration and information about: books; pamphlets, magazines; newspapers; serials; transactions; music; graphic works; geographical, historical and astronomical maps and atlases; and provides within certain limitations, information about official, instructive and other publications for restrictive use. Despite the impressive amount of material reflected in the "chronicles," the libraries and scholars insist on further extension of sources represented in the analytical bibliographies, their scope and criteria of selection of the listed material.
