Abstract : Bibliographic databases tend to be very verbose and pose a problem to libraries due to the huge amount of data entry involved. In this situation, the two technologies that offer solutions are retroconversion and optical character recognition (OCR). The application of building an intelligent system for automatic identification of bibliographic elements like title, author, publisher, etc is discussed here. This paper also discusses the heuristics in identifying the elements and resolving conflicts that arise 'in situations where more than one bibliographic element satisfy the criteria specified for identifying the various elements. This work is being carried out at the DRTC with the financial assistance of NISSAT.

Abstract : The success of any information centre lies not only on its own resources but also in identifying and enlisting the various sources of information and developing the requisite tools and systems for tapping those resources. The minimum requirement for ensuring such sharing of information is a common format for the maintenance of databases and the requisite technology inputs including software packages. This paper presents an overview of various software available for library automation and management of bibliographic databases and the various considerations in selecting a software.
