Overview

From the impact of the Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules, including amendments, to technology's potential for increasing productivity, you need to keep abreast of the latest changes and the newest innovations.

These detailed guides will help you:
-- Determine hardware and software needs for technical services workstations
-- Accurately catalog material from serials to reproductions to interactive multimedia
-- Integrate preservation activities into the acquisition process

For the first time, technical services professionals have a systematic, indexed, and ongoing update of key trends and developments in their fields. Much more than a literature review, New Directions in Technical Services fills a three-year gap from the discontinued "Year's Work in Technical Services" of Library Resources & Technical Services.

Contributors illuminate present trends in the field to aid technical service managers in making informed decisions. Areas covered are acquisitions, descriptive cataloging, subject analysis systems, filing and indexing, serials management, collection management, preservation, and access services. Annotations describe both print and electronic sources.
