Abstract

A report on the one-day seminar on standard schemas for collection-level description, held by UKOLN in London on Thursday 12 February 2004. This seminar was aimed at information professionals involved in the policy, development and implementation of services based on collection-level description. Such services use a single record to describe a collection as a unit, rather than recording information about its constituent parts at the item level.
