Abstract
Ia McIlwaine discussed the importance of addressing the issue of lack of user-friendly access to systems for users located in many parts of the world. The diversity of the European classification systems is a case in point. A good example of how to handle this diversity, in her opinion, is the system at the Federal Technical University in Zurich. It has an especially user-friendly French and German interface which, along with UDC numbers, provides captions helpful for the average user. Having examined the problems associated with transnational copy cataloging she emphasized the consideration of cultural constructs in transnational cataloging. For example, the Islamic countries tend to adapt translations quite well in their classification schemes due to the fact that they possess greater literary warrant in Islam. China appears to have solved difficulties concerning transnational copy cataloging by incorporating Chinese materials into specialized classification schemes while utilizing MARC records in the national library for cataloging Western materials. Philip Bryant called for the balance of "utopian vision" with practicality. He stressed that existing bibliographic notations must be pushed to the limit in an attempt to function with the network He applauded the continuous work of Stephen Walker, Stephen Robertson and Jill Venner for developing an online catalog (OKAPI) which allows the average user to obtain help existing in the database by using the classification system already established in the data. He emphasized the significance of the BUBL project at the University of Strathclyde, where UDC subject divisions are employed as a means of dividing subjects into fairly large groupings.
