The paper outlines international standards at present available for serials cataloguing, and goes on to describe the North American CONSER project in which these standards are being applied. It then discusses the prospects for a British data base of serial records, with the British Library's BLAISE system especially in mind. It concludes that with so many authoritative records coming available from the CONSER project it would be fruitless to duplicate this work in Britain, but that, hopefully, new serial records being input to BLAISE will conform to the same standards being applied in CONSER.
