A new edition of this best-selling textbook reintroduces the topic of library cataloging from a fresh, modern perspective.

Not many books merit an eleventh edition, but this popular text does. Newly updated, Introduction to Cataloging and Classification provides an introduction to descriptive cataloging based on contemporary standards, explaining the basic tenets to readers without previous experience, as well as to those who merely want a better understanding of the process as it exists today. The text opens with the foundations of cataloging, then moves to specific details and subject matter such as Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR), Functional Requirements for Authority Data (FRAD), the International Cataloging Principles (ICP), and RDA.

Unlike other texts, the book doesn't presume a close familiarity with the MARC bibliographic or authorities formats; ALA's Anglo-American Cataloging Rules, 2nd Edition, revised (AACR2R); or the International Standard Bibliographic Description (ISBD). Subject access to library materials is covered in sufficient depth to make the reader comfortable with the principles and practices of subject cataloging and classification. In addition, the book introduces MARC, BIBFRAME, and other approaches used to communicate and display bibliographic data. Discussions of formatting, presentation, and administrative issues complete the book; questions useful for review and study appear at the end of each chapter.

    Reviews/Endorsements

    Reviews

    "I recommend this book to instructors and students, to practicing professionals and paraprofessionals, and to selectors for libraries that support library science curricula. Ideally, this text would be used in conjunction with a wide variety of practical exercises in original cataloging and the creation of authority records."—Technical Services Quarterly

    "I recommend this book to anyone interested in gaining a strong foundation in classification, but most particularly to those new to the topic. It also would be useful to more seasoned catalogers who simply want to see the whole picture of what classification is and does."—Technicalities
