Prior to the Libraries programme under the third Framework Programme a number of preparatory actions were taken which led to the funding of some important precursor cooperative projects, i.e. ION, CDBIB, EDILIBE I, EROMM and GEDI.
Key objectives
The project's key objective has been to develop shared approaches to strategies, applications and formats for bibliographic data (especially national bibliographic data) on CD-ROM. This was designed to promote better and easier access by more users to European national bibliographies as well as promote economies in library cataloguing through an improved interchange of bibliographic records between European national agencies irrespective of different national MARC formats.
The results of the CD-BIB project consist in 57 deliverables, i.e. reports, 2 pilot CD-ROMs and test software.
The results are available on the Web server of the Koninklijke Bibliotheek, Den Haag (NL) from http://www.konbib.nl/kb/sbo/proj/cdbib/.


The principal contractor was the British Library (UK)
