International Standard Bibliographic Description

by IFLA Cataloguing Section and ISBD Review Group

Publisher: De Gruyter Saur

ISBD Consolidated editionThe consolidated edition of the International Standard Bibliographic Description (ISBD) was published by De Gruyter Saur in July 2011.

The consolidated edition merges the texts of the seven specialized ISBDs (for books, maps, serials, sound recordings, computer files and other electronic resources, etc.) into a single text.

The ISBD is useful and applicable for descriptions of bibliographic resources in any type of catalogue.  In this edition the stipulations for cataloguing the various resources have been made more consistent with each other and brought up to date.  The new area 0 for content form and media type is included for the first time.  The designation of mandatory ISBD elements has been brought into conformity with the requirements for a basic level national bibliographic record as determined by the Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR).
