Bibliographic description

A primary function of the national bibliography is the accurate bibliographic description of the works it contains. Rules for the creation of bibliographic descriptions have evolved in sophistication over the years and have developed from institutional, to national and ultimately global standards. NBAs should ensure that their metadata is created according to a recognised bibliographic description standard in order to ensure the utility, interoperability and efficiency of their bibliographic services.
