  2. 2. A new, bigger union catalogue The National Bibliographic Knowledgebase (NBK) will aggregate bibliographic data at scale and link with a number of other data sources to inform library collection management decisions and to help users more effectively find, access and use print and digital scholarly resources. We aim to include data from over 200 UK HE, research, and specialist libraries, and are accepting data now and into 2019, with the services going live in 2019. 27/03/2018 2
