About the Bibliography Section

The IFLA Bibliography Section is the international group interested in the techniques for the identification of content, arrangement, production, dissemination, and preservation of bibliographic information in national bibliographies, in particular through national bibliographic services in all contexts.

National bibliographic services are often interrelated with legal deposit, ISBN/ISSN assignment, cataloguing-in-publication, national authority files, and similar services.

National bibliography is an important link in the chain of dissemination and is at the centre of a system that involves libraries of all types (not just national libraries), along with publishers, distributors, researchers, and ultimately end-users.
