Bibliographic Services

This committee was established in recognition of the growth and development of the Hong Kong Chinese Authority Name Project (HKCAN) and due to the need for a broader and more structural approach to collaborative efforts related to bibliographic services. With representatives from all JULAC libraries, BSC provides a forum for discussions and communications to identify best work practices and collaborative opportunities to support the goal of providing effective bibliographic services. The HKCAN Working Group is considered a subcommittee of BSC.

The Bibliographic Services Committee shall

  1. work collaboratively to follow the international standards and to facilitate efficient cataloging workflows in JULAC libraries;
  2. work together to meet training needs, whenever possible, to better achieve staff development objectives;
  3. explore opportunities for collaboration in the area of metadata services among JULAC libraries; and
  4. communicate with the HKCAN Working Group which  identifies issues related to Chinese Name Authority Control that need to be addressed and develops plans for best actions.
