Key topics are: introduction to catalogues and cataloguing standards the FRBRization of the catalogue bibliographic elements access points and headings RDA: the new standard, its development, structure and features AACR and RDA: the similarities and differences between the two standards the MARC21 record bringing it all together the birth of RDA and the death of MARC.

There is also a fully explained worked example based on RDA Appendix M. Readership: Written at a time of transition in international cataloguing, this book provides cataloguers and students with a background in general cataloguing principles, the current code (AACR2) and format (MARC 21) and the new standard (RDA).

Book Summary:

A workbook on descriptive and subject cataloguing featuring practical examples and suggested solutions to reinforce theoretical concepts and practical application in descriptive cataloguing (using Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules, 2nd ed., 1998 rev.), bibliographic classification (using Dewey Decimal Classification, 21st ed.) and assigning subject headings (using Sears List of Subject Headings, 17th ed.). Includes examples for both manual and computerised creation of bibliographic records, thus preparing students for both automated and manual library and information service (LIS) environments While the workbook uses Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules, Dewey Decimal Classification and Sears List of Subject Headings as tools for information organisation, the major objective is to develop skills in information management and organisation While the workbook is likely to be predominately used in the instruction of first level library and/or information studies programmes offered by higher education institutions, it could very well be used in the LIS work environment
