Title
¬The Pakistan National Bibliography : an historical and critical study

Year

Abstract
The enforcement of the Press and Registration of Books Act in 1876 was the beginning of bibliographic activities in British India. In independent Pakistan, UNESCO had been the moving spirit in bibliographic developments. The 1st issue of the Pakistan National Bibliography (PNB) for 1962 appeared in 1966; subsequent issues too, appeared with a time lag of 2 to 5 years. The PNB covers only 30% of the country's total production owing to evasion of deposit laws by publishers. Numerous weaknesses were observed in PNB 1992 and PNB 1993, the 2 issues chosen as a test case, for instance: no uniform policy is followed for cataloguing and transliteration; inadequacy of DDC for classification of books on Islam and other oriental topics; lack of uniformity in choice of subject headings; and absence of authority files. The arrangements of the bibliography and layout of entries needs improvement. Recommends the computerization of PNB
