Overview

As with previous editions, it begins with strong justification for the continued importance of organizing principles and practice. Following a broad overview of the concept and its role in human endeavors, Taylor and Joudrey provide a detailed and insightful discussion of such basic retrieval tools as inventories, bibliographies, catalogs, indexes, finding aids, registers, databases, major bibliographic utilities, and other organizing entities. They then trace the development of the organization of recorded information in Western civilization from 2000 B.C.E. to the present. This book is for students and professionals eager to embrace the heritage, immediacy, and future of this fascinating field of study.
