Cataloguing of Continuing Resources

Go to the Sudoc

Shared cataloguing consistent with the ISSN Registry

The database Sudoc is regularly updated with the records created or modified from the ISSN RegistryA global bibliographic database of serials. The content of these records is authoritative within the cataloguing Sudoc and Sudoc PS networks. As a result, a number of fields in descriptive records for serials in the ISSN Sudoc are "under ISSN authority". The content of these fields may be changed by cataloguers only if accompanied by a request using the the CIDEMIS application.

Please note: the records can however be completed and enriched with information not included in the ISSN Registry (e.g.: Rameau indexing).
