Product Overview

Novice catalogers in special libraries, who are often expected to fulfill commitments to online bibliographic networks and cataloging consortia, will find this a thorough but uncomplicated guide to standard cataloging. Covering all aspects of bibliographic description, access points, indexing, classification, and related activities (e.g., authority control, catalog management, filing), the book focuses on the needs and cataloging problems encountered in special libraries, such as the cataloging of electronic media, technical reports, and unpublished materials. More than 100 examples illustrate the principles and practices involved. Chapters on law, science and technology, medical, business, music, and art libraries cover those materials and specific tools in depth, including subject- and profession-specific nonbook media, thesauri, classifications, and so on. Chapters on policies and catalog decision making point out advantages and disadvantages of various alternatives.
