The range of activities of Commission 5 has considerably broadened over the last decade, compared with its originally bibliographical emphasis. This fact is also reflected in the new name of this Commission as adopted at the Montreal conference. The increased production of astronomical data, the growing role of data centers in the organisation and retrieval of information, as well as the editorial and bibliographic processing of the large number of primary papers have indicated the need for new and more efficient coordinative guidelines. Several documents have been published and are under consideration, or are in preparation, for the agenda at the IAU General Assembly in 1982.
