A Practical Study Guide For Learning
Anglo-American Cataloging Rules 
MARC 21 Codes 
And Library of Congress Authorities

All the fundamental skills of descriptive cataloging are covered here: using AACR2, and coding descriptions and access points into MARC format.

All catalogers, whether professional or paraprofessional, need these basic skills. Consequently, this guide is equally suitable for college students studying library science, and library technicians and others who want to know more about cataloging, with a specific goal or as part of their professional development. Since the bibliographic record is the foundation of all the tools used in a library, from catalog to bibliography to online database, it is important for all library staff to be familiar with at least these basics.

This book contains many clear explanations and examples, along with numerous practice exercises that help students master creating MARC descriptions and access points. It includes the relevant MARC codes, a glossary, an index, and answers to exercises at the back of the book.

Learn Descriptive Cataloging is one of nine study guides in the Library Education Series. Please see the back of this book for a complete listing, or visit www.totalrecallpress.com for more information.
