Cataloguing Standards; The Report of the Canadian Task Group on Cataloguing Standards.
National Library of Canada, Ottawa (Ontario).
Following the recommendations of the National Conference on Cataloguing Standards held at the National Library of Canada in May 1970, a Canadian Task Group on Cataloguing Standards was set up to study and identify present deficiencies in the organizing and processing of Canadian material, and the cataloging problems of Canadian libraries, and to make recommendations for improvement. The areas addressed are: standardization of entry and bibliographic description; classification of Canadian history, literature and law; Canadian lists of subject headings; processing of government documents; processing of serials; and, a suggested program of implementation of the recommendations made. The recommendations of this task group provide a blueprint for long-term action which call for a basic overhaul and strengthening of the established structure of Canadian bibliographic services.
