Valuation of books and other printed items - Rare books and special collections - LibGuides at State Library of South Australia Information about a published item should be taken from the title page and the back of the title page (its 'verso'), not the cover, and should include the name of the author, the exact title of the book, the name of the publisher, and the place and date of publication. Date of publication Date of publication is usually shown on the title page or the back of the title page, or, sometimes with older publications on the last page. Edition The particular edition is important in considering the value of a book. Association copies Any book may have additional value if it is an 'association copy', that is, associated with someone important by virtue of bearing a signature, dedication, inscription, annotations, bookplate or some proof that it belonged to that person's library. Condition The condition of a book is of great importance in determining its value, and this applies to the binding as well as the text. Value The monetary value of a book, like other commodities, depends on supply and demand.

ISBD(ER): International Standard Bibliographic Description for Electronic Resources Continued 0. Preliminary Notes 0.1 Scope, purpose and use 0.1.1 Scope The International Standard Bibliographic Description for Electronic Resources - referred to hereinafter as the ISBD(ER) -specifies the requirements for the description and identification of such items, assigns an order to the elements of the description, and specifies a system of punctuation for the description. Electronic resources consist of materials that are computer-controlled, including materials that require the use of a peripheral (e.g. a CD-ROM player) attached to a computer; the items may or may not be used in the interactive mode. For cataloguing purposes, electronic resources are treated in the ISBD(ER) in two ways depending on whether access is local or remote. This definition is taken as applying for the most part to resources, including interactive multimedia works, that are generally available, and includes those accessed by network or via telecommunications. ISBD(ER) is one of several published ISBDs.
