    Introduction

    The International Standard Bibliographic Description (ISBD) is intended to serve as a principal standard to promote universal bibliographic control, to make universally and promptly available, in a form that is internationally acceptable, basic bibliographic data for all published resources in all countries. The ISBD’s main goal is, and has been since the very beginning, to offer consistency when sharing bibliographic information.

    The ISBD is the standard that determines the data elements to be recorded or transcribed in a specific sequence as the basis of the description of the resource being catalogued. In addition, it employs prescribed punctuation as a means of recognizing and displaying these data elements and making them understandable independently of the language of the description.

    Currently, a new Statement of International Cataloguing Principles is being developed by means of a series of regional IFLA Meetings of Experts on an International Cataloguing Code, in order that the principles are approved all around the world. In these principles, which replace and broaden the Paris Principles of 1961, the fourth section is devoted to bibliographic description where it is recognized that “The descriptive portion of the bibliographic record should be based on an internationally agreed standard.”1 According to this, ISBD is recognized to be the standard for the library community, as the statement of principles is intended not only for libraries but for archives, museums, and other communities.

    Although the development of this standard was originally pushed by the automation of bibliographic control as well as the economic necessity of sharing cataloguing, the ISBD is useful and applicable for bibliographic descriptions of all kind of bibliographic resources in any kind of catalogue, whether OPACs (Online Public Access Catalogues) or catalogues less technologically advanced. Those agencies using national and multinational cataloguing codes could apply this internationally agreed-upon standard conveniently in their catalogues.

    The ISBD Review Group is trying to solve some of the problems that today’s cataloguers face. The present ISBD is intended to serve as a standard for description of all types of published materials up to the present date, and to make it easier to describe resources that share characteristics of more than one format. In addition, it will facilitate the work of keeping the ISBD updated and consistent for the future.

    Having these goals in mind, in 2003 the ISBD Review Group decided to set up a Study Group on Future Directions of the ISBDs. This Study Group decided that consolidation of all ISBDs was feasible. The Study Group on Future Directions of the ISBDs was charged by the Review Group with the task of preparing a definitive text, resulting in this document. Its work has been guided by the following Objectives and Principles.

    Objectives:

    • To prepare a consolidated, updated ISBD from the specialized ISBDs in order to meet the needs of cataloguers and other users of bibliographic information.
