A Cataloguing Manual for the Curricular-Career Information Service.
Green, Christine H.
The procedures, process, problems, and policies of the career information cataloging system are described for librarians. Of the many tools for the delivery of career information for which the librarian is responsible, the card catalog is emphasized as having the highest priority in permitting access to information dealing with specific occupations in the career field, and to information ancillary to the career planning process, including material on educational opportunities, employability skills, and the problems of women, the handicapped, and other minorities entering the world of work. Types of files maintained in the card catalog are outlined, and the cataloging procedures are described with special attention given to the use of the Dictionary of Occupational Titles and the cataloging of non-print materials. This manual also provides courses of action for cataloging non-ephemeral information to be included in the collection and information to be included in the vertical file. Appendices provide an introduction to PRECIS (a computer-based system of subject headings), special projects, and a flow chart of the cataloging process. (FM)
