The aim of the dissertation is to provide an up to date (2005) account of the international debate regarding electronic resources cataloguing, and related prospects and problems. During those years AACR2 chapter 9 and ISBD (ER) were under revision and the international debate on this topic set problems of a very general nature, since they involved an attempt to shift the focus of cataloguing from the physical medium of the resource to its conceptual content.
