The STCN in a Global Perspective

Rémi Mathis


Though the need for extensive bibliographies appeared very early on, none were realized before the beginning of the 20th century, due to the huge amount of books which called for bibliographic description. This was the time, however, that choices were made and limits were fixed in order to define projects, organizations of work and ways in which the books would be described. Heterogeneous scholarly production were generated, among which the STCN is quite original since it has decided to use its own team, independent of the libraries in which the books to be described were held - an option that fostered greater accuracy in the descriptions. This paper aimes to compare the STCN with other contemporary bibliographies in a global scope.
Le Short Title Catalogue Netherlands (STCN), bibliographie nationale rétrospective néerlandaise (1483-1800) possède son équivalent dans un certain nombre d'autres pays. Le but de cet article est de comparer les différentes bibliographies, leur mode de production, leurs résultats et leurs possibilités scientifiques et techniques.
