Description Purpose – The aim of the article is to introduce a specific concept of truth into cataloging theory, which includes an ontological model of a bibliographic universe. It deals with the problem of how it is possible to use specific theories of truth in determining the truth and probability of a bibliographic record. Design/Methodology/Approach – The chosen theoretical starting point is the classical adequacy theory of truth combined with Tarski's semantic theory of truth and Popper's concept of probability. These are theories that we can classify as the so-called correspondence concepts of truth, the basis of which is the belief that truth is the agreement of thought with reality. Results – The concept of cataloging as making statements about entities that can take on true or false values can function as an ideal model, helping the cataloger to analyze and reflect on the cataloging process. Originality/Value – The combination of the adequacy theory of truth with the semantic theory is an original solution. The introduction of classical theories of truth into cataloging theory represents a new contribution.
