Bibliographic Control for History of Science: Commission on Bibliography and Documentation of the IUHPST/DHST (2013)


ABSTRACT early development of the commission Bibliographic control has been accepted for centuries among librarians, though nowadays it is spreading rather rapidly to other fields of knowledge. The new technologies offer us not only open access to information, but also the possibility of becoming drowned in it. Over the years, document-archiving strategy, along with development of bibliography, have been widely discussed within the International Union of History and Philosophy of Science and Technology / Division of History of Science and Technology (IUHPST/DHST). In 1993, two separate DHST commissions (Bibliography and Documentation) joined to create a Commission for Bibliography and Documentation (CBD). The first professional event sponsored by the CBD was a workshop on bibliography and documentation in 1995 in Liége. From that time on, the CBD adopted the goal of making bibliographic data more widely available in electronic form (Home, 1996, p. 309). The international community of bibliographers and archivists discussed the need to cooperate on archives of science in Europe and they agreed to create a working group at the European level on contemporary scientific archives. The acronym CASE was adopted, and the project was officially launched during the 22 nd conference of DHST in 1997 in Liége. The CBD became a technical assistant of the CASE, offereing to host a CASE website in association with the UK National Cataloguing Unit for the Archives of Contemporary Scientists (NCUACS) at the University of Bath. CASE remained an informal grouping of colleagues, Acta Baltica Historiae et Philosophiae scientiarum
