ISBD 2006 Consolidated Edition

The ISBD Review Group has issued an invitation to review the International Standard Bibliographic Description - 2006 consolidated edition. Comments are due by October 15, 2006.
... in 2003, the Review Group established the Study Group on Future Directions of the ISBDs. The Study Group determined that it was both feasible and useful to integrate the specialized ISBDs into one ISBD. The primary advantage of having a consolidated ISBD is seen as improved coordination of updating provisions as changes are identified for implementation. A consolidated edition will make it possible to make changes that are applicable to different types of resources and that previously could be made in only one ISBD at a time to apply to all types of resources at the same time. In response, the ISBD Review Group charged the Study Group to proceed to prepare a definitive text, and the result is now ready for World-Wide Review.
