Description

A biblioset is a raw wrapper for a collection of bibliographic information.

The purpose of this wrapper is to assert the relationship that binds the collection. For example, in a biblioentry for an article in a journal, you might use two bibliosets to wrap the fields related to the article and the fields related to the journal.

Processing expectations

Formatted as a displayed block.

A biblioset is raw. It contains a database-like collection of named fields. It is the responsibility of the processing system to select elements from within a biblioset, present them in the correct order, and add all punctuation.

There is no expectation that a system will present all of the fields in a biblioset or that they will be displayed in the order in which they occur.

Correct formatting of bibliosets is an interchange issue. See Appendix D.
