The only reason I gave this two stars is mainly due to the sad truth that reading about cataloging is fairly tedious. However, it did help with my overall understanding of the subject, which is more vast and complicated than I ever imagined. ( )

Very clear, easy to read, good examples. Preferred this to Taylor & Joudrey when there was overlap. ( )

I don't know - we'll see at the end of the semester exam.

Kind of dry, but a good introduction to cataloging. My main complaint is that MARC21 format is not well integrated into the text. Cataloging is the convergence of several rule sets, but at this point MARC is integral for actually using them. In that respect, it was not a good resource. The other essential problem is that it is pretty much just a list of different rules, but that is more of a problem with cataloging, rather than a problem with the text. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0810860007, Paperback)

The third edition of Lois Mai Chan's classic Cataloging and Classification covers the analysis and representation of methods used in describing, organizing, and providing access to resources made available in or through libraries, including both the materials owned by the library (mostly physical items such as books, journals, and nonprint materials) and external resources such as those in electronic form that are accessible through the library's portal. Chan emphasizes the standards for bibliographic control that were developed over the years and have been widely adopted in the library field; reports on recent developments in the retrieval arena; and discusses a number of widely used metadata schemas in order to provide a brief overview of this important movement closely related to resource description.

Divided into six parts—a general overview; resource description; access and authority control; subject representation access; the classification and categorization of library resources; and the encoding and processing of cataloging records—each part of the book begins with a list of the standards and tools used in the preparation and processing of that part of the cataloging record covered, followed by suggested background readings selected to help the reader gain an overview of the subject to be presented. Fully updated to incorporate changes that have occurred during the interval between the second and third editions, this book is the standard text for the teaching and understanding of cataloging and classification.
