State of the art of special bibliography on applied sciences and science.


The author discusses in detail the present and desirable development trends of special bibliography on technology, agriculture, medicine, etc. The special bibliographies in the field of applied sciences and science in Hungary are of varied standard. As a whole, they cannot be qualified as poor, but in significant fields they do not make up a unified system. Cooperation and the application of modern technology, the creation and multifold use of databases are urgent requirements, the prerequisites of which are compatibility, the creation and application of standards. On the other hand, the situation of the financing of special bibliographic activities is increasingly disquieting. (pp. 523-534)
