ZUM developed the COBISS/SciMet portal to monitor scientific publications and to evaluate publications published by Slovenian authors. The methodology of collecting, aggregating and processing data on Slovenian authors obtained from different information resources, e.g. WoS, Scopus, COBISS.SI, SICRIS, SNIP and JCR is described. The options of data display within the portal and the functionalities of the portal are presented. A new framework used for developing the COBISS/SciMet web application is presented.
For more than twenty years, the Permanent UNIMARC Committee (PUC) has been directing the development of four UNIMARC formats; two of them enable international exchange of bibliographic and authority data, whereas the other two formats support high quality standardised operation of library and bibliographic systems. In the last decade, the most important tasks performed by PUC have included UNIMARC data transfer to the web, FRBR model implementation and independent development of formats to ensure their compatibility with various cataloguing rules.
Relating to the connection between information science and bibliography (and librarianship), the elements are given to compare the concepts of Répertoire Bibliographique Universel (RBU) and COBIB within the COBISS system. Different aspects of understanding the development of bibliographies and the author’s personal view of the development of bibliographies are presented. According to Paul Otlet’s idea, conceived at the end of the 19th century, RBU was to represent the universal bibliography of all books and other publications from all countries, from all times and from all subject areas, organised by subject and author. Catalogues should represent the first stage of RBU.
