Format COMARC za opis fotografij

The holdings of Slovenian libraries also include photographs, which can be catalogued and included in the COBIB shared bibliographic database. Photographs as a medium are very specific compared to other types of library material, as one of their characteristics is that the data required for bibliographic description is missing. However, cataloguing in the COMARC format still enables adequate description. Photographs can be catalogued in three ways.

It lists the advantages and also points to some disadvantages that should be improved in order to enable a larger retrieval of photographs.
