World Wide Thai Bibliographical Control.
This paper discusses bibliographic control in Thailand. The first section provides background, beginning with the compilation of the "Catalog of the Books of the Royal Vijirajan Library" in 1892; several papers on the history of Thailand's bibliographic control are listed. Recent changes due to the widespread use of information technology are addressed in the second section, including early database development, library automation, and the adoption of MARC format. The next section describes the following organizations that play important roles in compiling electronic resources in Thailand: the Thai National Documentation Center; the Thailand Information Center; and the Technical Information Access Center. The fourth section summarizes trends. A list of recommended library and government bibliographic World Wide Web sites in Thailand is appended. (MES)
