About the NBK
The national bibliographic knowledgebase is an ambitious project to create a large-scale UK bibliographic database, using a platform supplied by OCLC. The NBK will underpin enhanced Jisc services, including resource discovery, collections management, and cataloguing.
By building on and surpassing the functionality and coverage of Copac and SUNCAT it will more effectively support the management of library collections so that they are optimised for contemporary research and learning needs.
The NBK aims to aggregate data from all UK higher education (HE) libraries, plus specialist and research libraries and other open access data sources, with over 200 libraries available on the NBK by 2020.
Who should attend
Librarians in all roles at UK HE institutions.
May be of particular interest to cataloguers and metadata specialists, collection managers, and subject specialists.
