This is good book for gaining an entry level understanding of the organization of information, cataloging and metadata. ( )

Heavy, tedious reading but it has everything I need in very clear language. The content is just difficult, not the writing. I prefer this textbook to having to read 50 scholarly articles; I thank my professor for using this medium. ( )

In the process of reading and enjoying the larger font size.

Cataloguing is not for me. ( )

Informative, but harder to read than the Chan, which covered much of the same material. Part of it might have been the font. Good examples, though. ( )

Book description
This book was required reading for MLIS 4010, Organization of Information, which I took in the fall of 2012.  I found it difficult to read, but a good reference to utilize.
