Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This book can be an effective training tool for both students and novice catalogers. . . . I highly recommend this publication for your collection." - Technical Services Quarterly

"This work is a tool designed for those who are new to cataloging serials or need the latest information about revisions and developments in the field. It can also serve as a reference tool in understanding basic concepts as an aid to accessing serials and their records. This would also be an invaluable tool in a graduate teaching environment." - VOYA

VOYA - Hilary Crew
As the authors point out, serials are essential resources, both for information and for entertainment. In this comprehensive guide to the concepts of cataloging serials, the authors' definition of a serial includes any publication issued in successive parts that is intended to continue indefinitely. Serials include yearbooks, annual reports, and numbered monographic series, as well as newspapers and magazines. Especially addressed is the cataloging of serials in an online environment. Each chapter deals with a specific concept; for example, title access, how to deal with title changes, when to use a corporate body as the main access point, dealing with issues of numbering and frequency, and how to handle journals that are published both on-line and in-print. Each chapter includes definitions and discusses the latest cataloging resources and rules. The work's greatest value lies in the substantial number of OCLC entries used to illustrate the concepts discussed and the application of rules. Also helpful are clear definitions and explanations used in dealing with serials that have been published in different formats, such as Pc Magazine which has been issued in print, on-line, and CD-ROM versions. This work is a tool designed for those who are new to cataloging serials or need the latest information about revisions and developments in the field. It can also serve as a reference tool in understanding basic concepts as an aid to accessing serials and their records. This would also be an invaluable tool in a graduate teaching environment.
