I think a more exact count would be more in accord with the spirit of the rules.  At least in theory, a union database might have 50 documents in 30 or 40 different libraries.  The rules imply that there should be a reasonable concentration of documents in specific locations.

Bibsys is the common library database for many (most) Norwegian universities
and research institutions. It is fairly well "cleaned" in the sense that one
item in several libraries usually has one entry only (with "location"
information indicating which libraries have the item). This means that some
books may be in one library and other books in another, but the books that
are in both are counted only once.

The Laponica database is a Finish bibliographic database covering in
particular Sami items in Finish libraries.

Sami languages are being taught and studied at a fairly limited number of
universities and colleges in Norway, Sweden and Finland. A closer "count"
would be possible, if the JAC should feel that this is necessary. Is it? Our
rules do not state that any one library shall have 50 documents, but that
the combined holdings shall be more than 50 (or am I completely mistaken?).

Best regards,
Håvard

Sorry about the delay in sending out ballots for Sami. I plan to do that
now. But I have a question about what Havard has submitted. You include
here the number of entries in the Bibsys and Laponica databases. Are these
records union listings from several libraries? Our guidelines state that
the documents should be held in specific institutions. It is not clear how
many institutions hold how many documents. I just want to clarify to see
whether these fit the criteria established (most likely they do).

Also, perhaps Glenn could check the OCLC database for entries.
