BIBLINK: Linking Publishers and National Bibliographic Services
Project BIBLINK was funded by DG XIII/E-4 under the Telematics Application Programme of the European Union Fourth Framework Programme. It aimed to establish an electronic link between national bibliographic agencies and publishers of electronic material, in order to establish authoritative bibliographic information that would benefit both sectors.
The project leaders of BIBLINK are the British Library and partners include the national libraries of France, The Netherlands, Norway and Spain, the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (Barcelona) and UKOLN.
