This article covers the history of bibliographic control in South Africa, with the focus on the legislation regulating legal deposits and a national agency for bibliographic control, and the various role players (eg interest groups, bibliographic networks, the national archival service and service providers for bibliographic control tools). A selection of bibliographic control tools, including union catalogues, bibliographies, indexes and databases, as well as advisory groups and research reports, are also discussed.
