Oppelt, Šimon ; Rösslerová, Klára (advisor) ; Buřilová, Marcela (referee)
The aim of this bachelor's thesis is to describe and analyse communicative formats which have been used for communications of bibliographic data in the last 25 years in the Czech republic. The first chapter outlines the structure of a generalized exchange format as specified in ISO 2709 Information and documentation - Format for information exchange. In a detailed chapter 2 the main characteristics, pros and cons of four communicative formats are presented (including Czechoslovak Exchange Format and its predecessor Common Data Structure, UNIMARC and MARC 21 formats). The third chapter tries to examine the reasons for the the abandonment of UNIMARC format and the adoption of MARC 21 in 2004 in the Czech republic. Chapter 3 also explains the international circumstances under which the process of transition occured. In conclusion the thesis sumps up the development in the field of communicative formats used in the Czech republic from 1988 until now.
