Discusses the place of traditional bibliographic standards in the new electronic age. Questions the more extreme predictions of Internet enthusiasts concerning the future of printed materials and considers the culture change involved in developing print‐based and network‐based systems side‐by‐side. Discusses the nature of the standards required and concludes that existing bibliographic standards are not only suitable for dealing with the new situation but also have the benefit of applying relevant professional wisdom learned over many years to the new situation. Discusses Anglo‐American Cataloguing Rules and indicates some possible amendments to the machine‐readable catalogue format.
