Canadiana: Canada's National Bibliography: Description and Guide.
National Library of Canada, Ottawa (Ontario).
This guide to the national bibliography of Canada includes works published in and about Canada, works by Canadian authors, and federal, provincial, and municipal government publications. "Canadiana" became operational in 1951 when bibliographic citations to monographs and serials were listed. As resources became available, more information and more types of materials were listed. Most recently, automation has been instituted. Brief discussions are provided of the purpose of the bibliography and its content, exclusions, and arrangement, including treatment and inclusions by material type--monographs, theses in microform, serials and monographic series, pamphlets, sound recordings, films, filmstrips, and videotapes, and Canadian government publications. Classification and cataloging procedures and a discussion of future directions are included, as well as a chronology of Canadiana inclusions since its inception in 1950 through 1978. Both English and the French versions are provided. (MBR)
