Bibliographic Services for a National Network.
Avram, Henriette D.; Pulsifer, Josephine S.
The thesis of this paper is that efficient functioning of a network is dependent upon the organization of bibliographic services so that the basic record for each bibliographic item is created once. This record must be minimally capable of serving the needs of libraries, information centers, abstracting and indexing services, and national and trade bibliographies. What is proposed is a centralized National Bibliographic Service (NBS) composed of component institutions functioning as a unified whole. The authors assume the existence of a national network, with appropriate telecommunications. The intent is to demostrate the need for a centrally processed bibliographic record, to consider standardization requirements for such a record, and to point up the results of failing to provide this record.
