Exploring Partnerships: What Can Producers and Vendors Provide?
This document focuses on the role of producers and vendors in the construction of bibliographic catalogs. The paper offers three issues related to cataloging that are becoming more and more significant to users: (1) aggregators and aggregations, i.e., large sets of electronic aggregations, principally of serials; (2) ancillary data, including tables of contents, book indexes, author portraits, summaries, and book reviews; and (3) metadata for electronic books.
