BIBSOCAN is an open, unmoderated discussion group dealing with the subject of bibliography. While groups such as SHARP-L, EXLIBRIS and BIBSOFT discuss ancillary aspects, they do not address themselves specifically to questions of a bibliographical nature.
A majority of bibliographers are self-taught. This group serves as a forum where knowledge of techniques are shared and solutions to problems proffered and those who are more skilled share their experience and knowledge with those who are still finding their way. News of bibliographical events, conferences, meetings and publications are also posted.
Although the list is sponsored by The Bibliographical Society of Canada /La Société bibliographique du Canada, it is the hope of the Society that the group will not be confined to Canadian bibliography and bibliographers but will be international in scope.
