National bibliographic agencies are called on to accept responsibility for creating the definitive record for each resource issued in that country. It is therefore recommended that descriptions prepared by them contain all the mandatory elements set out in the ISBD insofar as the information is applicable to the resource being described. It is recommended that this practice be followed also by other libraries that share bibliographic data with each other.

250 The responsibility for creating bibliographic descriptions may extend beyond libraries, for example, to cultural institutions, publishers, independent scholars and various online communities.

The ISBD description forms a part of a complete bibliographic record and is not normally used by itself.

The other elements that make up a complete bibliographic record, such as headings and subject information, are not included in the ISBD stipulations. The rules for such elements are normally given in cataloguing codes and other standards.

References from variations of the title proper or other references that may be called for in a national cataloguing code do not form a part of the bibliographic description and are not provided in the ISBD.

They may be indispensable, however, in catalogues and bibliographies.

Informational elements relating to a particular collection (location of material, recording of holdings, etc.) 260 are not provided by the ISBD; they are local elements that can be added to the general description.

To describe a resource that exhibits characteristics of different types of materials (e.g. an electronic continuing resource, a digital map that is serially issued), a cataloguer should combine stipulations for the different types of materials that are necessary to describe all aspects of the resource, including its content, its carrier, its medium, and its mode of issuance.

A.2 Treatment of resources A.2.1 Object of the bibliographic description The ISBD is used to create a description of a set of resources that bear the same characteristics in respect to both intellectual content and physical form, i.e. an edition. An edition may be identified by an edition statement on the resource or by information provided by the publisher. A major difference between two 270 resources in any of the elements indicates that different editions are involved and separate descriptions are required. A change in the identity of the distributor does not constitute a change of the edition. An ISBD description describes a complete copy of a published resource.

Resources can be published as single-part resources or as multipart resources, as finite or intended to be finite or intended to continue, and they can be issued at one time or at successive times.

A single-part resource is a resource that is issued as a single physical unit.

Multipart resources are treated either in a multilevel description (see Appendix A) or in a single-level description of the entire resource. In some cases the parts of a multipart resource can also be described as single-part resources.

ISBD Continuing resources are treated as serials or as integrating resources. Also catalogued using the 280 stipulations for continuing resources are those resources issued in successive issues or parts bearing numbering, and that bear other characteristics of a serial (e.g. frequency in the title), but whose duration is limited (e.g. the newsletter of an event). In addition, finite integrating resources (such as a Web site for a political campaign) are catalogued using these stipulations.

For older monographic resources:

Not only editions, but also issues, impressions and states of older monographic resources may be given separate descriptions. This standard makes no provision for situations where no conclusive evidence as to the intended extent of a resource exists or when an imperfect copy is catalogued without the help of a bibliographic description for the resource. Whenever possible, a description of a complete example should be found.

290 Where no complete example exists, a description may be worked out from imperfect copies if the imperfections are such as to permit this, and imperfections and other peculiar characteristics relating to the copy in hand described in area 7 (see 7.11). In this case, it is understood that the description prepared may not apply to all copies of the same edition, issue or state.

A.2.2 Electronic resources Electronic resources are treated in the ISBD in two ways depending on whether access is direct or remote.

Direct access is understood to mean that a physical carrier can be described. Such a carrier (e.g. a disk, cassette, cartridge) must be inserted into a computer or into a peripheral device attached to a computer.

Remote access is understood to mean that no physical carrier can be handled; access can only be provided 300 by use of an input-output device (e.g. a computer) connected to a network or by use of resources stored on a server or other storage device. All remote-access electronic resources are considered to be published.

Electronic resources are also increasingly produced in different editions. A new edition occurs when it has been determined that there are significant differences in the intellectual or artistic content of the resource.

In these cases, a separate bibliographic record is created. A resource in which the differences are not found to be significant would normally not warrant a separate bibliographic record, although a cataloguing agency may choose to create multiple bibliographic records. Significant differences include additions and deletions; a difference in the programming language; changes to upgrade or improve the efficiency of the resource; modifications in the programming language or operating system that allow the resource to be compatible with other machines and operating systems.

310 Differences that do not constitute a new edition include: a difference in the size of the physical carrier (e.g.

14 cm vs. 9 cm disk); differences in printer-related file formats (e.g. ASCII vs. PostScript); differences in system-related formats (e.g. IBM vs. Macintosh); differences relating to the character code or to blocking or recording densities. The differences may be given in area 7.

A.2.3 Resources issued in multiple formats If a resource is issued in different types of physical carriers, or in different output media, each different physical carrier or different output medium is described in a separate bibliographic record.

A.2.4 Multimedia resources For the physical description of multimedia resources, see 5.1.2.

A ISBD A.2.5 Reproductions 320 In describing a facsimile or other photographic, micrographic, or digitised reproduction, bibliographic information pertaining to the reproduction is given in all areas of the description, except area 3 for serials.

Information pertaining to the original is given in area 7 (see
