International Standardization of Library and Documentation Techniques.
International Federation for Documentation, The Hague (Netherlands).; United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).
This comparative study of the national and international standards, rules and regulations on library and documentation techniques adopted in various countries was conducted as a preliminary step in determining the minimal bases for facilitating national and international cooperation between documentalists and librarians. The study compares and evaluates the various existing standards, and proposes action to create the necessary conditions for the general adoption of standardized technical processes in library and documentation work with a view to increasing compatability in this field. The subject field is divided into four major sections: layout of documents; library work and equipment; documentation work and services; and mechanization of library and documentation processes. Within these, special emphasis is placed on themes which have an important bearing on the international dissemination of information as well as on themes of growing importance such as mechanization.
