AbstractThis study was conducted to investigate the bibliographic relationships in the MARC and it’s consistency with the FRBR model. With establishing the necessary relations between bibliographic records, users will retrieve their necessary information faster and more easily. It is important to make a good communication in existing bibliographic records to help users to find what they need. This study’s purpose was to define the relationships between bibliographic records in the National Library's OPAC database and the study’s method was descriptive content analysis approach. In this study, the online catalog (OPAC) National Library of Iran has been used to collect information. All records with the mentioned criteria listed in the final report of the IFLA bibliographic relations about the first group entities in FRBR model and RDA rules has been implemented and analyzed. According to this study, if software has been developed in which the data transferring was based on the conceptual model and the MARC’s data that already exists in the National Library's bibliographic database, these relationships will not be transferable. Withal, in this study the relationships on consistent FRBR and MARC concluded with an intelligent mind and the machine is unable to detect them. The results of this study showed that the relations which conveyed from MARC to FRBR, was about 47/70 percent of the MARC fields, in other hand by FRBR to MARC with the use of all intelligent efforts, and diagnosis of MARC relationships, only 31/38 percent of the relations can be covered through the MARC. But based on real data and usable fields in Boostan-e-Saadi with MARC pattern, records on the National Library of Iran showed that the results reduced to 16/95 percent..

Personalinės bibliografinės informacijos specifika ir funkcijosRaudytė, Nijolė (2012)On the grounds of the writings and publications of Lithuanian and foreign bibliography research workers as well as the empirical material of the author’s study, the article deals with the situation of personal bibliographic information resources in Lithuania, their functional possibilities and the specifics of their practical use. Referring to the fact that the essence of personal bibliographic information is the reflection of a personality’s intellectual and creative potential, attention is drawn to the functions performed in the sociocultural system and to their connection with the methodology of compiling these resources. The increasing volume of publishing Lithuanian printed personal bibliographic information resources demonstrates their popularity. However, nowadays it becomes more and more obvious that the processes of their preparation are not effective, and also the methodology is a subject of dispute. In such a situation, it means that the possibilities of the practical use of personal bibliographic information resources become limited, and often the resources cannot fully serve their true purpose. Thus, we may come to the conclusion that at present a new systemic approach to personal bibliographic information, its specific functions and features as well as the corresponding methodological solutions are necessary. All the processes of preparing and functioning personal bibliographic information resources shall be aimed at reveling their functional possibilities.
On Integrating Existing Bibliographic Databases and Structured DatabasesLU, Ying; LIM, Ee Peng (Institutional Knowledge at Singapore Management University, 1996-08-19)It is widely accepted that future digital library applications have to be built upon different kinds of database servers to draw different forms of data from them. These data include bibliographic data, text data, multimedia data, and structured data. We address the problem of integrating existing bibliographic and structured databases which reside at different locations in the network. To integrate bibliographic data and structured data, we extended the well-known SQL model to represent bibliographic related attributes and queries. In particular, we have added a new data type to model attributes in the bibliographic database. We have also designed specialized predicates and functions that can be used to formulate queries on bibliographic data alone as well as queries on both bibliographic and structured data. By combining our SQL extensions with the other SQL extensions that model general text data, we believe that a versatile query language layer can be made available to our future digital library application development.
Lietuvos personaliniai bibliografijos leidiniai sovietmečiuRaudytė, Nijolė (2012)Article deals with the analysis of Lithuanian personal bibliographic publications issued within the period of 1948–1989. The analysis was performed by the author who followed statistical and analytical principles and it revealed the specifics of subjects, objects and results of this field of bibliographic activity. In Soviet times the number of personal bibliographic publications constantly increased and both professional and non-professional bibliographic work was carried out in an active way. The analysis of contents of personal bibliographic publications demonstrated that in the Soviet period great attention was drawn to preparation and issue of personal bibliographic publications covering such spheres of activity as philological sciences, fiction and historical sciences. It was found out that the axiological function (regarding value and orientation) of personal bibliographic information was based on a social and pedagogic aspect peculiar to the analyzed period. The personal bibliographic information prepared in the Soviet period nowadays may successfully perform the cognitive, scientific research and socialization functions. Thus, we see that the major part of personal bibliographic publications issued in the Soviet period have survived and were left in Lithuanian libraries though they underwent strong “cleaning of stacks” in the first years of Independence and today they are used in case of necessity what proves their importance as of the source of history of science and culture.
