I am actually using it in my Graduate Cataloging course. The examples are the big draw for me. I am lucky to have purchased it used, but with the accompanying CD. It serves its purpose well. ( )

Excellent resource for any library and information science student or beginning cataloger. ( )

Lots of examples of how to catalog books. Used copy unfortunately did not have CD included. ( )

You know you're a librarian when... you have a book on how to catalog in your library. This was the textbook for my graduate level cataloging class. It is a scintillating look at how to catalog many things in life.

My professor was in fact Dr. Saye, the author, and that still didn’t make the class much fun.

That is why Library Thing is such a boon. It harvests the MARC for you saving everyone the trouble of learning the boring nature of cataloging. WooHoo Z39.50.

The textbook is dry and at times not very useful. It reads, well it doesn’t read because it is more instructional with visual examples. Use at your own risk. ( )
