English abstract

This paper examines several experiences in evaluating bibliographic records from a new perspective, a perspective determined by recent technological developments, the globalization of information that is taking place in on-line systems and the influence this has had in both the functional structure and the evolution of catalogs: two elements become evident in those research studies: the considerable amount of mistakes found in bibliographic databases as well as the direct impact of these mistakes on on-line systems. It is also our aim to characterize the concept of "design quality" as an essential requirement in the earliest stage of the descriptive catalog process. Therefore, this paper includes an analysis of the concept of "quality", where we deal with its origins, objectives, and fields of application. This analysis provides us with the theoretical groundwork for the study of the concept of "quality based on design", as well as for the study of the elements involved in it. Finally, we look into the different descriptive levels put forward in the cataloging codes and the relationships they bear with several aspects of design quality.

Spanish abstract

A la luz del impacto de los nuevos desarrollos tecnológicos y del fenómeno de globalización informativa que se produce en entornos en línea así como su influencia en la estructura funcional y evolución de los catálogos, se plantea el estudio de algunas experiencias que han tenido por objeto la evaluación de registros bibliográficos. En estos trabajos se constata el elevado número de errores detectados en bases de datos bibliográficas, así como la relevancia de su repercusión en entornos en línea. El presente trabajo persigue caracterizar el concepto de “calidad de diseño” como requisito esencial en la fase primaria del proceso catalográfico descriptivo. Con este fin se realiza un análisis del concepto de “calidad” atendiendo a sus orígenes, objetivos y ámbitos de aplicación, que sirve de soporte teórico para el estudio del concepto de la “calidad basada en el diseño” así como de los componentes que la determinan. Finalmente, se estudia la cuestión de los diversos niveles descriptivos propuestos por los códigos catalográficos y su relación con diferentes aspectos de la calidad de diseño.
