Bibliographic Standards

At its meeting on 15 June 2004, the Rare Books Group (RBG) Committee agreed that in principle it supported the establishment of a Bibliographic Standards Committee (BSC) as a sub-committee of the RBG Committee, with a remit covering all matters relevant to describing and providing access to collections of rare books and, where appropriate, manuscripts. On 22 February 2005 the RBG Committee approved the setting up of the committee, to be known as the UK Bibliographic Standards Committee of the CILIP Rare Books Group; with the name change of the Group, the Committee name later became the UK Bibliographic Standards Committee of the CILIP Rare Books and Special Collections Group.
