Statement of International Cataloguing Principles to be available for worldwide review soon

Yesterday, I received a message from Barbara Tillett and the attached documents from the series of IME ICC meetings. The final drafts of the Statement of International Cataloguing Principles and its attached Glossary are to be translated into working languages of the IME ICC meetings, including Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Italian, Spanish and Arabic, and will be posted on the IFLANET for worldwide review until June 30, 2008. I will do the translation of the cover page of the worldwide review, and I have asked Mr. WANG Shaoping, Shanghai Jiao Tong University Libraries, and his colleagues to do the translation of the Statement and the Glossary.

After the worldwide review, these documents will be submitted to the standing committees of the Cataloguing Section and the Bibliography Section of IFLA Division IV for approval, and will be then published by IFLA.
