Multilingual Dictionary of Cataloguing Terms and Concepts

"The Multilingual dictionary of cataloguing terms and concepts contains definitions for many terms and concepts used by the library cataloguing community. Terms and definitions are available in English and a variety of other languages.
The MulDiCat project was begun by Monika Muennich in 1998 for IFLA's Cataloguing Section. It was stored in a proprietary database developed by Bernard Eversberg in 2003. It has now re-emerged in part as a Word table and as a SKOS file on the new IFLA Namespace.
