Bibliographia Cartographica – International Documentation of cartographical literature
Since 2007 the map department of the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin has made available online the Bibliographia Cartographica (BC), a database listing international scientific literature relating to cartography. The database was created in 1989 in consultation with the working group „Bibliography of cartographical literature“ (Bibliographie des kartographischen Schrifttums) of the German Cartographic Society (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Kartographie - DGfK).
Currently, the BC online lists ca. 33,000 articles, published in journals, multi-author works and serials, as well as 5,700 monographs relating to cartography. About 1,500 new titles, print and electronic publications, are added every year. 141 international journal titles (electronic formats included) are regularly indexed.
The last printed version of the BC, volume 34, was published in 2012. Scientific literature published later than 2006 has only been included in the online version, literature published before 1989 should be searched for in the printed editions of the BC.
