To increase the ability to share cataloguing information worldwide by promoting standards for the content of bibliographic and authority records used in library catalogues.
This invitation only meeting is the fourth in a series of regional meetings of cataloguing experts and rule makers, planned by the IFLA Cataloguing Section.
To examine cataloguing codes currently used in Asia to compare their similarities and differences with the 1961 Paris Principles; to review and possibly approve the 2003~2005 draft Statement of International Cataloguing Principles, from the European, the Latin American/Caribbean and the Arabic-speaking Middle East regional meetings of IME ICC; to see if our cataloging rules can be more similar; and perhaps to suggest proposals for an International Cataloguing Code.
