 Goff’s style is taken as a basic standard, although where appropriate a fuller title or more expanded account of contents is given to improve retrieval. Goff’s order has also largely been adhered to except, mainly, where more recent scholarship on an author or text has made a new arrangement or a new heading seem desirable, or where a new chronology of editions has been established as a result of recent research. This means that the author headings and titles used in ISTC fall within the tradition of incunable bibliography,​ as Goff largely followed the practice of Ludwig Hain’s Repertorium Bibliographicum,​ the Gesamtkatalog der Wiegendrucke (GW) and BMC (Catalogue of Books Printed in the XVth Century now in the British Museum), with the result that some of the forms used for the names of authors differ from those used in such sources as modern library catalogues, the British Library General Catalogue as well as subject literature. ISTC includes notes recording widely diverging forms of names, which are indexed for searching.  ​ Goff’s style is taken as a basic standard, although where appropriate a fuller title or more expanded account of contents is given to improve retrieval.

 Although all ISTC records are provided with a code showing the main language of the work, country-of-publication codes have not been added, to avoid the confusion between fifteenth-century and modern boundaries. Although all ISTC records are provided with a code showing the main language of the work, country-of-publication codes have not been added, to avoid the confusion between fifteenth-century and modern boundaries.
