Abstract:

Artillery attacks during the siege of Sarajevo in August 1992 destroyed the collection and catalog of the Bosnian National and University Library. The effort to rebuild the library depends, at least in part, on the reconstruction of its catalog. We examined WorldCat, the OCLC Online Union Catalog, to determine the criteria that would be most effective in selecting records appropriate for rebuilding a Bosnian catalog. For the first cut extraction, we applied the following seven criteria to WorldCat: (1) works of Bosnian authorship, (2) works in Serbo-Croatian languages, (3) works about Bosnia or Yugoslavia, (4) works classified by LC or Dewey as Bosnian, (5) titles with Bosnian keywords, (6) works published in Bosnia, and (7) works with Bosnian-related subjects. Examination of the results suggests that adding selected geographic subject headings and personal name subject headings will result in better recall.
