Description

This work is a guide to the principles of cataloguing for librarians, information scientists and information managers. It is intended to be used in conjunction with an internationally recognized standard to show how, firstly, cataloguing underpins all the other activities of an information service and, secondly, how to apply best practice in a variety of different situations. It relates theory to practice, and includes guidance on subject cataloguing as well as descriptive cataloguing. The text also covers the use of ISBD and Dublin Core in descriptive cataloguing, rather than being tied exclusively to using AACR. Not only does the work describe the how's of cataloguing but goes a stage further by explaining "why" one might want to catalogue a particular item in a certain way.
