Abstract

Because of the concentration of interending on the British Library Lending Division, union catalogues primarily play a supportive role in Britain. All union catalogues now held at the Lending Division have their origins in the National Central Library NCL. The main one is the Union Catalogue of Books UCB which is an amalgamation of the NCL's Outlier Union Catalogue OUC and part of its National Union Catalogue NUC. With the creation of the British Library Lending Division and its policy of acquiring all worthwhile English language books it was decided that it would no longer be necessary to have a central authortitle catalogue of recently published English language books. Only details of foreign language books and pre7972 English books are therefore now added to the catalogue. Other smaller catalogues used are the combined regional ISBN list, the pre1801 Catalogue, the Conference Catalogue, the Government Publications Catalogue, and the Slavonic Union Catalogue. The Lending Division does not maintain a catalogue of serials, the British Union Catalogue of Periodicals BUCOP is used to locate titles or parts not in stock at the Division.
