The BIBLINK project is described and some of the issues arising from it are discussed. BIBLINK is a project funded by the European Commission. It began in May 1996 and is due for completion in February 2000. The aim of the project is to establish an automated flow of information, between publishers and national bibliographic services, in order to create authoritative bibliographic data that benefits both sectors. The project examined the way in which electronic publications are described for catalogues and other listings and developed a software system to allow the transmission of bibliographic metadata between the two sectors.
Learned Publishing is the journal of the Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishers, published in collaboration with the Society for Scholarly Publishing. The journal is published quarterly in January/April/July/October.
