11.0 National Library Catalogues and National Bibliography (Current)


Note: National library catalogues record the holdings of a specific library. They are not necessarily a comprehensive record of national publishing, and they include material published in other countries. Current national bibliographies attempt to record all works published in a given nation, usually relying upon copyright and/or depository regulations to achieve this aim. Works listed in the national bibliography will not necessarily be found in the national library.

Check the U of T Library Home Page for listings of other library catalogues available on-line [UTL Catalogue; Resources; Other Library Catalogues] including the AMICUS (listings of 500 Canadian libraries) and RLIN (major research libraries). http://www.library.utoronto.ca/resources/index.html
