    INTRODUCTION

    The International Standard Bibliographic Description (ISBD) is intended to serve as a principal standard to promote universal bibliographic control, that is, to make universally and promptly available, in a form that is internationally acceptable, basic bibliographic data for all published resources in all countries. From the beginning, the main goal of the ISBD has been to provide 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 data elements and making them understandable independently of the language of the description.

    A new Statement of International Cataloguing Principles was published by IFLA in 2009.1 In these principles, which replace and broaden the Paris Principles2 of 1961, the fifth section is devoted to bibliographic description where it is stated that Descriptive data should be based on an internationally agreed standard.3 A footnote identifies the ISBD as the standard for the library community, as the statement of principles is intended not only for libraries but also for archives, museums, and other communities.

    Although the development of this standard was originally motivated by the automation of bibliographic control as well as by the economic necessity of sharing cataloguing, the ISBD continues to be useful for and applicable to bibliographic descriptions of all kinds of published resources in any type of catalogue, whether manual or machine based. Those agencies using national and multinational cataloguing codes could apply this internationally approved standard conveniently in their catalogues.

    Work on the ISBD has been guided by the following objectives and principles:

    The ISBD provides consistent stipulations for description of all types of published resources, to the extent that uniformity is possible, and specific stipulations for specific types of resources as required to describe those resources.
