Overview

Since 1967, Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules has served the profession with highly developed content standards for cataloging the resources that come into your library. It is the one-stop gold standard. AACR2 walks you through the cataloging process with clearly defined rules and practical examples representing standards that apply to any type of resource and all metadata formats. The Joint Steering Committee has brought together a new Update reflecting changes and improvements in effect for 2005. What's new in the 2005 update? New and updated rules, including instructions, for capitalization of single letters used to represent words, and for multiple-letter prefixes in compound terms Changes arising from the preparation of the new edition of Cartographic Materials: A Manual of Interpretation for AACR2 A checklist of updates With 8.5" X 11" loose-leaf pages that fit a standard 3-ring binder, separately numbered chapters for easy integration of updates, and a design that clearly distinguishes the rules from the examples, AACR2 is the essential resource for descriptive and access cataloging. Libraries can rely on this international standard for flexible, ready-to-apply rules for the fundamental work of developing resource catalogs and bibliographic entries. With annual update releases that easily integrate into this streamlined format, AACR2 continues to be the authoritative choice for achieving consistency, clarity, and accessibility in cataloging resources across all media.
