Bibliography Section

Division: Library Services

The Section on Bibliography is primarily concerned with the content, arrangement, production, dissemination and preservation of bibliographic information, especially (but not exclusively) where these pertain to national bibliographic services. It is also concerned with the promotion of the importance of the discipline of bibliography to library professionals in all types of library (not just national libraries), to publishers, distributors and retailers and also to end-users. Whilst taking full account of technological possibilities, the Section is aware that such developments are not yet available in some areas of the world, and it will ensure that its solutions are not necessarily dependent on particular technologies.

The Section is closely associated, where appropriate, not only with the other Sections within the Division of Library Services but also with the Section of National Libraries. français

Please look at the Section's information factsheet (English; Español; Русский; 中文; العربية; Deutsch; Français) for further information on its activities. If you would like to consider joining the Standing Committee, full information (including the required forms) can be found here.

The 2014-2015 Action Plan for the Section is now also available.
