In the four years since the last edition came out, there have been new editions of nearly every cataloging rule and tool to which it refers: the Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules, Library of Congress Subject Headings, Sears List of Subject Headings, and Dewey Decimal Classification, to name a few. As only they can, Sheila Intner and Jean Weihs lead the wary and unwary alike, to apply them with competence if not aplomb. Through hundreds of examples, they illustrate cataloging problems and their solutions; they also describe and explain a variety of management decisions, the pros and cons of cataloging alternatives, and the rudiments of how to run a catalog department. They have even included a new chapter on metadata, as well as enlarged sections of practical advice on how to deal with changed subject headings and classification numbers.
