Greek bibliographic resources have generally been difficult to access in North America. This volume presents revised versions of papers first given at a meeting held in December 2006 that explored the possibility of effective transnational cooperation between libraries in Greece and in North America. Five broad themes dominated the conference: collection development and acquisition; bibliographic control (including cataloguing, adherence to standards, transliteration issues, and Unicode); reformatting (i.e., microfilming and digitization); indexing the contents of periodicals; and resource sharing and document delivery. Papers are either in English or Modern Greek.
