|Section of Bibliographical Information
||Typing on computer
activity of Bibliographical Information service focused on
local bibliography has its beginnings in the '50, consolidating
its activity in the last decade.
Local bibliography is dedicated to study and distribution
of periodical publications and other documents containing
information from history, geography, economy, socio-politic
and cultural life of a certain territory.
So, in our daily activity, within
this section of Mures County Library, we find, systematize
and valorize the information referring to our county.
One of the ways of putting into light the richness of local
information existing in the library is by publicizing them.
Local bibliographical publications, however, are always based
on catalogues. We keep these catalogues separately:
-Periodicals (newspapers, magazines, yearly
books, calendars, almanacs) edited and printed in Mures County
-Books, albums, map edited and printed in
Mures County after 1990;
-Books referring to Mures County, issued
after 1990, no matter of the place of edition/printing;
-Books of Mures authors, issued after 1990,
no matter of the place of edition/printing.
Beside these catalogues, the local bibliography section has,
as information instruments:
-Catalogue `Personalia`, which encompasses
the bio-bibliographical file (completed or partial) of Mures
personalities from all the fields, during the years,
-File of local press reviews (and not only)
issued after 1990, with local references.
Using this catalogues and files, is being realized the publication
in separate volumes of those local bibliographies that we
trust that are useful and scientific instruments serving the
The first local bibliography
in the chronological order of printing is `Bibliography of
periodicals=Idoszaki kiadvanyok bibliografiaja: 23 dec. 1989-31
dec. 1994` published by Fulop Maria in 1995. This work represents
the first volume from the series `Mures Bibliographies` and
encompasses 135 titles, with bibliographical description,
numbered and alphabetically ordered. Critics instruments formed
by seven types of indicators (after content, name, collective
authors, publishing houses, geographic, chronological and
ISSN) facilitate finding the publications and information
from the description.
In an interval of two years,
in 1997 appears the second volume, from the series `Mures
Bibliographies`, with the title `Bibliography of Books, Albums,
Map printed in Mures County=A Maros Megyeben kiadott konyvek,
albumok, tertepek bibliografiaja: 1990-1995`, issued, as the
first one, by Fulop Maria. 524 books are classified after
their content according the Universal Decimal Classification
into ten big classes and chapters and they are bibliographical
described according the provisions ISBN(M). We remark those
volumes, that through their content have local references,
and in very short notes this information is highlighted. Information
grouped into seven indicators written down on the bottom of
the work presents lots of aspects and nuances of the spiritual
and economic society from the period mentioned in the bibliography.
In 2000 two bibliographies of
great interest were printed: a bibliographic dictionary of
Romanian Mures writers and a bibliography of Mures periodicals
from 1795 and 1972.
Ana Cosma has put together
the bibliographic dictionary `Romanian Mures Writers` and
it is a pioneer works in Mures County. The author has been
working for four years to the identification and research
of the works of the 221 writers included in the dictionary,
with the collaboration of Fulop Maria and Vintila Szasz Anna.
Being a bibliographical work, description of written documents
is specifically bibliographical.
`Mures periodicals=Maros megyei
idoszaki kiadvanyok bibliografiaja: 1795-1972` written by
Dimitrie Poptamas and Mozes Julia represents one of the most
valuable books written about the history of Mures County.
It has the merit of including 177 years of Mures publicize,
over 350 pages and 547 titles of periodicals. The bibliographical
part is completed by a very useful critical apparatus, made
by a table content indicator, chronological, geographic and
publishing houses indicators, as well as a bibliography of
the main works and the short notes used. After one year, in
2001, was printed the continuation of the first Mures bibliography,
that of periodicals. If the first volume presents the local
Mures press on a period of five years (1990-1995), with the
new volume the `landscape` of periodicals is completed for
another five years, obtaining thus the image of Mures press
in the last decade of the XXth century.
= Idoszaki kiadvanyok bibliografiaja: 1995-2000` was written
by Vintila Anna and it continues the conception line of the
The number of the registered publications is 390. Out of these,
377 periodicals were printed between 1995 and 2000 and 13
were printed before 1995 (given to the library lately).
The criterion of including in
the line of Mures periodicals was the place of printing. In
the bibliography, there are included 13 titles that although
they have not been published in Mures County, they are Mures
publications, because they were printed here. Having a strong
conviction of their necessity, Mures County Library would
like to publish in the future other local bibliographies that
would contribute to the intellectual and material image of
our County. These are the followings: `Bibliography of Mures
Books, Map, Albums (1996-2000)`, `Bibliography of Books, Albums,
Map with Mures references (1990-2000)`, `Dictionary of Mures
