COBIB.SI: increment of bibliographic records in 2018

The article presents the analysis of the annual increment of bibliographic records in COBIB.SI in 2018. The analysis includes data gathered throughout the year. The emphasis lies on bibliographic data (n = 169,226), but also includes data on the increment of authority records for personal names in the CONOR.SI database (n = 63,716) and data on records downloaded from other databases, such as WorldCat (OCLC), ISSN Register (International Standard Serial Number), Library of Congress Online Catalog and the Library of Congress Name Authority File (LCNAF). Included is the analysis of the increment of bibliographic records by months for 2018 and the most productive days of the year. In the last quarter of the year, the most (29.4 %) records were created; the most (n = 1,060) on Thursday, 6 December 2018. The most productive day of the week based on the number of created records is Tuesday. In terms of record type, the trend of the following years continues, as the most records were created for monographs (50.2 %) and component parts (38.7%). The least records were created in February and August. In 2018, cataloguers with 583 usernames from 258 libraries contributed records. Through the presentation of the increment of bibliographic records in COBIB.SI, we would like to present the scope and emphasise the importance of a cataloguer's work within the COBISS system.
