This book is good in that it is technically correct, and it provides a ton of information on cataloguing. However, it is not very accessible! I suppose it is an introduction to the topic, but the writing is extremely dry and rarely engages the reader. Even technical writing like this should have a little life! ( )

Dr. Taylor is obviously a highly intelligent woman who is well known and respected in her field. However, she seems (to me at least) to belong to that class of people who are brilliant yet unable to explain their field to others. I found this book very dull and technical, even though I don't think cataloging is necessarily a dull and technical occupation. It seems to me that although this book is meant to be an introduction, you need to have at least a minimal background in cataloging in order to understand the text. Dr. Taylor's discussion of Anglo-American Cataloging Rules (AACR), for example, was much more confusing to me than just reading AACR itself. Overall, I found this book difficult to read and not particularly useful. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 159158213X, Paperback)

In this landmark edition of the classic work, Taylor offers practitioners and students of library and information science a complete, up-to-date, and practical guide to the world of cataloging and classification as it stands at the beginning of the 21st century. The new edition emphasizes online catalogs and cataloging, with all the attendant terminology. Also included in the work are the 2002 revision of AACR2, MARC 21, the 21st edition of Dewey Decimal Classification, current schedules of the LC Classifications, the latest Library of Congress Subject Headings, and the 17th edition of the Sears List of Subject Headings. In addition, Taylor addresses such vital issues as Internet cataloging, international access control, Natural Language Processing, and ontologies. The section of administrative issues has been completely rewritten and suggested readings have been updated in all chapters. A revised glossary provides clear definitions of the terminology needed to master this important field.
