Abstract

The library and information science defines the National Bibliography as the only witness of the book part of the national memory, which aims to bring relative information about the contents of the collections. In this joint connection, the national memory is based on two important moments: the existence of the complete national collection, which also means the entire process for securing and preserving it and the methodical and professional bibliographic description for public use in the present day and in the future. The national bibliography prepares the inventory without prejudging the values of the document because this process will then serve to determine what will be included/called national heritage and property. The bibliography simultaneously stores the necessary resources for the library activity, but also the historical resources for future knowledge. The objectives of bibliography are: finding and grouping. The bibliography not only completes the national memory in the field of publications, but it also paves the way for the recognition and multifaceted study of this heritage in the field of their content, the set of themes of publications, influence and reception, geography of works and publications, socio-political, cultural consequences, statistical studies and many, many others, which certainly have the right effect when the library criteria and standards are correctly applied. I will try to bring the arguments from the National Bibliography of the Retrospective Book, the period 1913 - 1944, that is, after the construction of the Albanian administrative state began and progressed forward.
