I codici di catalogazione più noti risalgono per la loro impostazione
strutturale a venti e più anni fa, quindi ad un contesto assai differente
da quello attuale per quanto riguarda la tipologia di materiali, loro forme
di presentazione, strumenti e metodi di realizzazione e consultazione di
cataloghi, pratiche di ricerca e fruizione degli utenti. [...]I codici di
catalogazione costituiscono proprio il ponte fra un'enunciazione generale
di funzioni e la realizzazione concreta dei cataloghi, e non possono perciò
non risentire dei tanti e importanti cambiamenti che gli ultimi anni hanno

> Subject: Invitation to Review Revision of ISBD(G)
> World-Wide review of "ISBD(G): General International Standard
> Bibliographic Description -- 2003 revision". Comments due by February
> 16, 2004
> To: Colleagues
> From: John D. Byrum, Jr. Chair, ISBD Review Group
> In the early 1990s, IFLA's Division of Bibliographic Control set up a
> Study Group on the Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records
> (FRBR).  Following adoption of the Study Group's recommendations, the
> ISBD Review Group was charged to initiate a full-scale review of the
> ISBDs.  The objective of this project was to ensure conformity between
> the provisions of the ISBDs and FRBR's data requirements for the "basic
> level national bibliographic record" (BLNBR).
> In the ISBDs, national bibliographic agencies are called upon to prepare
> the definitive description containing all the mandatory elements set out
> in the relevant ISBD insofar as the information is applicable to the
> publication being described.  To facilitate implementation of this
> principle, the ISBDs designate as "mandatory" those data elements that
> are always to be included in records prepared by national bibliographic
> agencies, as "conditional" those that must be included under certain
> circumstances but that need not be included otherwise, and as "optional"
> those that may be included if desired but that are not required.
> Therefore, the main task in pursuing this revision project has entailed
> a close examination of the ISBD data elements that are mandatory to make
> optional those that are also optional in FRBR.  (In no case is a data
> element mandatory in FRBR but optional in the ISBDs.)
> The updated version of the ISBD(G) is now available at:
> <http://www.ifla.org/VII/s13/guide/isbdg_wrd.pdf >
>              In addition to the changes resulting from the work outlined
> above, this version of ISBD(G) introduces some changes in terminology.
> Among them is the use of the term "resource" rather than "item" or
> "publication".  "Resource" is given a specific definition in 0.2.  It
> was decided, because FRBR is a conceptual model and does not map exactly
> to terminology in the ISBDs, that FRBR terminology should not be used.
> The use of the former term "item" is different from the term "item" as
> used in FRBR, but it is not difficult to confuse them.  This led to the
> decision to use "resource." The ISBD Review Group feels that it is
> essential for IFLA to clarify the relationship between the ISBDs and the
> FRBR model.  The Group believes that development of a table to detail
> the relationship of each of the elements specified in the ISBDs to its
> corresponding entity attribute or relationship as defined in the FRBR
> model would satisfy the need to make clear that the ISBDs and FRBR
> themselves enjoy a harmonious relationship.  Towards this end, a project
> has been proposed and funding for it is being sought.  Those who comment
> on ISBD(G) are invited to share their views as to the need for and value
> of this project.
> The text itself is presented as a draft for world-wide review.
> Comments on this draft revision of ISBD(G) are now being sought. Please
> submit your comments to Dorothy McGarry by February 16, 2004.
