Book Description

May 30 2006 1591582350 978-1591582359 10th Revised edition

In the latest edition of this classic work, Arlene Taylor once again offers a complete, up-to-date, and practical guide to the world of cataloging and classification. Since the publication of the ninth and ninth-revised editions (2000 and 2004), changes have occurred in almost all areas of the organization of information in general, as well as in cataloging and classification. The 10th edition incorporates the 2002 Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules, Second Edition (AACR2), MARC 21, the 22nd edition of Dewey Decimal Classification, current schedules of the LC Classifications, the latest Library of Congress Subject Headings, and the 18th edition of the Sears List of Subject Headings. In addition, Taylor addresses such vital issues as FRBR (Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records), FAST (Faceted Application of Subject Terminology), and the Semantic Web. The bibliography and glossary have also been substantially reworked. In fact, only the appendix, which covers arrangement dilemmas and filing rules, remains unchanged.

Product Description

From Booklist

This revised edition of Wynar's Introduction to Cataloging and Classification (9th ed., 2000) completely incorporates revisions of AACR2, enhancements to MARC 21, and developments in areas such as resource description and access.^B Aside from the many revisions and updates and improved organization, the basic content remains the same. Beginning with an introduction to cataloging, cataloging rules, and MARC format, the book then turns to its largest section, "Description and Access." Authority control is explained, and the various methods of subject access are described in detail. Finally, administrative issues, including catalog management, are discussed. The glossary, source notes, suggested reading, and selected bibliography have been updated and expanded, as has the index. The examples throughout help to illustrate rules and concepts, and most MARC record examples are now shown in OCLC's Connexion format. This is an invaluable resource for cataloging students and beginning catalogers as well as a handy reference tool for more experienced catalogers. Heather Heyduk

Booklist Professional Reading



"The professional collections of librarians, students, and educators would be enhanced by including the 10th edition of this work. Those who have enjoyed the 9th or previous editions will appreciate the effort that has gone into updating the 10th edition to include more discussion about the impact of technology in cataloging management and the importance of the international view on cataloging principles and practice. Those for whom the 10th edition is their first reading of this text will discover the immense breadth of topics covered within and the careful presentation of key cataloging concepts that many have come to expect from the editors."

Library Collections, Aquisitions, & Technical Services



"This is not a book of cataloging examples. Rather, it is a book to help new catalogers understand both conceptually and in detail the profession which they are entering. From the point of view of someone in the profession, this book contains very useful information and does an excellent job of presenting the big picture as well as necessary fundamentals. It offers thorough coverage of topics needed for understanding of cataloging and classification in today's libraries. For those who have not read this book, it is highly recommended. For those who are familiar with the book, the revisions, additions and overall updating of terminology and concepts will be appreciated."

Technical Services Quarterly



"[T]his text will be extremely useful for cataloging teachers and their students. Practicing catalogers may use the text as a reference or training tool. I highly recommend this text and reference book for cataloging departments and libraries."

5.0 out of 5 stars Cataloging for the 21st century June 28 2007

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book will get any media specialist ready for the important changes in cataloging. I took the course in the 90's but so much has changed and this book truly gets you ready for the world of automation and technology in the 21st century.

Arlene G. Taylor is very detailed and knows her craft!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book Jan. 29 2011
By L. Melillo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I found this book extremely helpful while obtaining my MLIS. There are plenty examples- and it comes with a CD for further assistance. Please note though that this is more of a guide book. It does not do the cataloging and classification for you.

:Update:
I will continue to say that this book is still helpful. While my job does not entail cataloging, it allows me to know when a mistake is made and a record needs to be updated. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in LIS.

5.0 out of 5 stars cataloging can be fun Dec 4 2008

Great resource. Much more functional than many of the texts I used in library school.
3.0 out of 5 stars In Depth and probably comprehensive Dec 9 2013
By Debbi - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was a very in-depth book, I would think targeted to a Library Science major in college. It covered many different kinds of classifications, while I was interested only in Dewey, so it was not as useful to me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good reference for librarians who classify and catalogue different documents Sept. 10 2006
By Yang Shu - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is very comprehensive works for classification and catalogue of documents,including intenet resources.However,one new concept--FRBR and its recently research had hardly reviewed, maybe the author has not enough materials, though this new concept and model had been suggested for eight years.The othor regret is about the classification, the work reviewed detailedly about DDC,LCC,but hardly reviewed about the other classifications,which use languages other than English.I think the researcher in the apoch of Internet should have a global perspective, not just limited in the only one country,or only one language world(eg.English).I hope the next edition can be improved in these respects.
