Why Bibliografia?

The best tool for handling even the most complex bibliography systems

The functionality of the cataloging system described below goes beyond the standard regional bibliography (RB). Libraries often have subject or topic bibliographies that do not match the RB, which is why they end up not being entered into any IT systems.

Enabling a system to add attachments opens up a whole new range of possibilities for the system’s users preparing Social Life Documents and regional collections. A bibliography system thus enhanced can also handle the requirements of museums and universities that archive, for instance, their employees’ publications.

Regional Bibliographies
Regional Bibliographies

Regional bibliographies have been established in all of Poland’s voivodeships and, in general, the rules are such that one large library (usually the main voivodeship one) brings together the region’s libraries that want to participate in a voivodeship bibliography, assigns them a set of media titles to catalogue (the voivodeship library usually works on large daily newspapers, while county or municipal libraries work on local periodicals).

Data exchange
Data exchange

The system allows for two-way data exchange with Regional Bibliography Systems (RBS). Libraries can retrieve RBS records via the Z39.20 protocol or via .mrc files. Libraries working in our system can also attach their records to the voivodeship RBS using the Z39.50 protocol, while specifying which specific records are to go there.

Attachments
Attachments

What distinguishes our system from the competition is its capacity to add attachments to template records and bibliographic records. Users can add jpg or pdf files from scanned documents, thereby providing much faster access to specific information. The system also enables searches of attachment content if it is saved in pdf format.

State-of-the-art design

Easy-to-use, intuitive interface

We designed the system using our thorough knowledge of new technologies and user experiences.

The contemporary, easy-to-use interface requires no specialized training for bibliographers. The system can be accessed via a web browser and is completely independent of local IT infrastructure. All you need is Internet access.

  • Adapted to museum requirements (employee publications)
  • Adapted to university requirements (employee publications)
  • Bibliography development based on the MARC21 format
  • Z39.50 and OAI-PMH data exchange protocol implemented
  • Data can be imported from any library system
  • Easy permission management

FAQ

Below are the answers to frequently asked questions. If you don’t find the information you seek here, please write to us.

Is the system compatible with existing Regional Bibliography Systems (RBS)?

Yes, the system allows users to share entered records using the Z39.50 protocol. If the Regional Bibliography System (RBS) uses this particular protocol to communicate, Bibliografia users can also search and download records already stored in the RBS.

Can I import data from KaRo?

Bibliografia allows you to import data from KaRo through a *.mrc file. All you have to do is download a record from KaRo as a file, then import it to Bibliografia.

How many employees can use the system?

The number of users is unlimited. One library/ museum/ university employee is appointed Administrator for their institution, and this person is authorized to add accounts for other employees.

What are the requirements for installing Bibliografia?

The Bibliografia system runs in the cloud; nothing is installed on local computers. All you need is a web browser (preferably FireFox) and Internet access.

What can be printed out from the system?

The system allows you to print selected records in the form of: tables (similar to inventory books kept by libraries), extended lists (corresponding to catalog cards), bibliographic footnotes and descriptions from previously printed versions of regional bibliographies. In upcoming versions, we will provide users with mechanisms that let them generate their own versions of printouts.

Does the system enable you to download records from the Polish National Library?

Yes, the system enables direct searching of Polish National Library databases, as well as downloading records in MARC21 format – for example, from the KaRo search engine.

Is the system limited to cataloguing articles?

No, the system can catalogue any library materials, which makes it a perfect tool for keeping records of Social Life Documents or Regional Collections (both in analog and digital format).

Will it be possible to import records that have been compiled so far?

Yes, users themselves will be able to import files from previous programs in .mrc format. We will also provide guides on how to prepare such a file yourself, and help you if necessary.

Does the system take into account the latest trends in bibliography compilation?

Yes, the system is based on the latest MARC21 format, developed under Library of Congress (LoC) and Poland’s National Library (NL) guidelines. One of the determinants of the latest trends are the descriptors implemented in the system and its extensive template entries that enable them to be cross-linked.

Does the Bibliografia system enable adding links and attachments to records?

Yes, each record can include attachments (e.g. scans of articles described therein) and links. Links (i.e. hyperlinks) can serve to register materials found on websites (blog articles, YouTube videos or social networking posts). One record can have links and attachments added simultaneously – e.g. a screenshot of the article described.
