Borchardt, D. H., Ed.; Thawley, John, Ed.
As organized by the Working Party on Bibliography of the Australian Advisory Council on Bibliographical Services, this conference brings together librarians and bibliographers to examine Australian national requirements for bibliographic services and control. Seven conference sessions provide discussions of the Australian National Bibliography (ANB) (J. Flesch), Australian government publications (A. E. Miller), Australian indexing services (D. Abbott), nonbook materials including maps and music (J. Wells, H. Sugden, and G. Stecher), national union catalogs (N. Stockdale), retrospective national bibliography (P. Fanning), and gaps in Australian subject bibliography (D. H. Borchardt). Each session as presented in this proceedings includes a paper with recommendations for improvement of the service in question, introductory remarks made at the conference by the author of the paper, a prepared response by another conference participant, and the more significant comments on the paper as they emerged from edited versions of the tape-recorded discussions. A summary of all the recommendations made in the course of the conference, an explanation of abbreviations used throughout the proceedings, a name and title index, and a list of conference participants are attached.
