IFLA General Conference, 1992. Robert Vosper IFLA Fellows Programme. Papers.
International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions, London (England).
Four papers prepared under the Robert Vosper Fellowship Program of the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) and delivered at the 1992 annual meeting are presented. "International Cooperation in the Field of Name Authority Data: Observations and Recommendations" (Francoise Bourdon) presents an early diagnosis of problems found with manual and automated authority files concerning the names of persons, corporate bodies, and uniform titles for anonymous classics; and it proposes some solutions. "Personal Access to Library Services by Use of Existing Technologies" (Titia van der Werf) reports on a study carried out under the 1991-92 Vosper program. It explores the connections among automation, service, and personal access for the library user in the framework of Personal Information Technology. "Preservation Education in the Nineties: A Preliminary Report" (Michele V. Cloonan), a 1991 Vosper study, considers preservation and conservation programs in library schools through questionnaires and interviews. "Minimal Level Cataloguing by National Bibliographic Agencies: Summary Report" (Jay H. Lambrecht) discusses the threat to universal bibliographic control that differing minimal level standards cause.
