Part of the International Economic Association Series book series (IEA)


To meet the need for economic information, national and international co-ordination and co-operation are necessary. Within the whole spectrum of library and documentation activities, only the conditions for interlocking catalogues, with a view to networking and interaction, are described in this paper. The existing cataloguing rules and classification scheme for alphabetical and subject cataloguing are discussed, in general, and from the aspect of effective international co-operation and cataloguing. The author mentions the present international activities and plans, including NATIS, in the library and information field. He discusses the advantages and disadvantages of alternative prospects for interlocking cataloguing in economics.
