The database contains authority/standard and reference machine-readable records for the following names (entitets): “person’s name”, “organization’s name”, “generic name”, “administrative and territorial or geographic name”, “trade mark”, “unified title”, “summary unified title”, “country of issue as access point”, “form, genre or physical characteristics of the document”.
Authority records contain information about accepted (fixed) titles and include their variant forms, connections with other authoritative records, different remarks and other additional information which characterizes the title or the authority record on the whole. Titles in foreign languages are presented in their authentic form. Authority records are points of access for bibliographical records of documents presented in the electronic catalog. Also they can be used as an independent reference resource on Belarusian studies. The database is currently updated and includes materials in Belarusian, Russian and foreign languages.
