Kataložna pravila i praksa u zemljama jugoistočne Europe

The article presents results of the research into state of the art of theoretical foundations and use of cataloguing rules, putting them in relation to the contemporary trends in the field of bibliographic control. The research that was conducted in national libraries and library associations of countries of South-East Europe showed that in spite of the claimed use of Eva Verona’s Code and Manual for the Compilation of Alphabetical Catalogues as national cataloguing rules in the majority of interviewed countries, the practice shows a conscious decline from the rules due to new types of resources, national implementations of MARC formats, and use of specific library software. The split between cataloguing rules and the practice itself, as well as the use of different solutions for certain bibliographic conditions even within the same institution, impose the need for either the development of new or the revision of the existing national standards and cataloguing rules.
