Poti do konsistentnih katalogizacijskih pravil

The article addresses the issue of the cataloguing rules used in Slovenia within the COBISS shared cataloguing system. The outdated cataloguing codes (PPIAK, AIK), and undocumented updates, modifications, and cataloguing practice from the last 14 years have created in the time of high-speed technological changes more and more difficulties in the development and operation of the COBISS system. Based on the example of the revision procedures of the Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules, second edition (AACR2), a comparison is made to show how the development and maintenance of the cataloguing rules have been dealt with in the most developed library environments. In those environments, a number of institutions, diverse library associations working groups as well as individual library and information experts are brought together to prepare the cataloguing rules, whereas in Slovenia one can hardly participate in professional debates on the cataloguing issue, as there are almost none conducted. One may conclude that for Slovenia the adoption and adaptation of AACR2 would be the quickest and the most rational way to achieve the consistency in the cataloguing rules.
