In order to optimize the use of available bibliographic data in machine-readable form by Canadian Libraries, the National Library of Canada is developing new automated systems. Implementation priorities are related to the development of national and international standards, systems, and networks. One major project is the design of a system, using MARC (Machine-Readable Cataloging) formats, for cataloging and for compiling "Canadiana," the national bibliography. Development of Canadian MARC tapes is another major project. A third project will be the establishment and coordination of an automated Canadian union catalog system. (PF)
