Level of Authority Control

The scope of the national bibliography should be reflected in the scope of the authority file. Thus, NBAs that include journal articles in the national bibliography should include the authors and contributors to those articles in the authority file. In practice however, most NBAs cannot afford to catalogue articles and are unable to create authority records for their authors. This is an area for stimulating research into more efficient approaches to authority control.
