The article describes the process of updating Slovenian authority records in VIAF, the entry of identifiers into the CONOR.SI database and their display in COBISS+. For most authority records, the updating in VIAF went smoothly, whereas in some records for personal names errors occurred during the process of putting them into clusters, which were then sorted into four groups and compared with the typical entry-related issues described in the VIAF Guidelines.
In November 2018, with the entry of authority records for personal names into the VIAF (Virtual International Authority File) system, Slovenia joined national libraries and other institutions that form authority data. Thus, Slovenian authority data is published at a global level. The article presents the VIAF system, the combining of records into clusters and their appearance in the web.
With the article we attempt to set out the principles of organization of libraries of the armed forces in Slovenia. In order to learn more about the organization of libraries, we have analyzed the literature and visited some of the libraries.
Presented in this paper are the very beginnings of library automation in Slovenia, the current state and issues. A special emphasis is given on the automation level of larger libraries which, for the most part, are full members of the COBISS.SI system. The paper also contains comprehensive factual data on the system.
For evaluating research performance a reliable bibliographic base is required; in this respect, Slovenian state bodies responsible for allocating public funds for this purpose rely on COBISS.
