Cataloguing at the National Library of the Czech Republic
General characteristicsThe charge of the cataloguing divisions of the National Library is to create records for all materials, which are currently acquired by the Library. All records are in MARC 21, and they use AACR2, Czech authority files, Konspekt and UDC. The largest unit and also the promulgator of cataloguing policies is the National Bibliography and Cataloguing Division. However, cataloguing is done also in other, semi-independent units of the National Library:
- Slavonic Library,
- Manuscripts and Incunabula Department,
- Library Science Department,
- Serials Department.
- Department of Technical Support and Retrospective Conversion
