Title: The language distribution of bibliographic records in selected online databases

Abstract: This study explores the language distribution of materials included in on-line bibliographic databases between 1970-84. Eight databases (BIOSIS, Chemical Abstracts, GeoRef, MEDLINE, Criminal Justice, Oceanic Abstracts, PAIS, PsycInfo) on DIALOG were chosen for their world-wide coverage of literature in their respective fields. Trends are accounted for by examining database provider policies and practices. The data are compared with book and serial production statistics, to begin to assess the possible relationship between the databases and the actual availability of literature. The results describe the degree to which English has increased, decreased, or remained stable in relation to other languages, as reflected in the availability of bibliographic records in these databases.
