CoBRA - Computerised Bibliographic Record Actions

"CoBRA (Computerised Bibliographic Record Actions) promoted core actions associated with the provision of machine-readable national bibliographic services, through a forum of European national libraries.

Its main objectives were to foster actions which would:

  • create a European dimension for provision and exchange of bibliographic data from agencies with responsibilities at a national level.
  • promote links between organisations involved in bibliographic record creation at all stages of the publication and distribution process, to mutual benefit in both the public and private sectors.
  • improve the efficiency and utility of national bibliographic services by stimulating the adoption of new technologies for the enhancement and delivery of those services.
  • encourage standardisation among parties involved in supply and use of records."
