Overview

Like the first edition, this updated workbook has a straightforward goal: to help expand and improve the effectiveness of library catalogs. It is designed to supplement existing textbooks by providing exercises in AACR2r and RDA description, classification, subject analysis, and MARC protocols. Particular attention is given to problems that may arise when cataloging books as well as multimedia combinations, 3-D items, toys, natural objects, maps, printed and performed music, bilingual materials, and electronic files. Through the exercises, you will better understand the overall process of cataloging an item and making a record, the application of RDA in producing records, the steps for cataloging new media, and the differences in records using RDA or AACR2r.

To enhance the exercises, the workbook incorporates photographs of real materials and offers questions for consideration. There is also a companion website with enlargeable color graphics. The site provides complete answer records and additional indexes for instructors to use in selecting examples for specific elements in the record. For students, new or advanced, selected MARC answer records are included, as are special lists, forms, and indexes leading to the tools any cataloger will need.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This book of cataloging examples is best suited for, and was intended as a supplement for, a textbook in a cataloging course. Examples are an invaluable source for teaching library science students how to catalog different sources. The cataloging course I took in graduate school had a similar workbook of examples gathered from the professor's everyday work in a large public library. This book would have saved my professor several hours of compiling, reviewing, and copying that information for class each semester."
