The Bibliographic Management of Web Documents in Digital and Hybrid Libraries
Web documents present digital and hybrid librarians with a set of bibliographic management issues heretofore of no or minor significance for materials in print. These include frequent content change as well as the rate at which Web documents are removed or moved by their authors or creators. There have been a number of author-side and cataloger-side initiatives to assist in the management of Web documents, but these do not adequately address change. This paper explores some of those options. It addresses the impact of document change and demise on digital and hybrid collections. It offers suggestions on the management of the change and demise phenomena.
