The Author and Title Catalog in the Library; Its Role, Function, and Objectives; Report 2 of a Series on the Principles of Cataloging.
In setting out to design a system of cataloging, or to evaluate a given system, or to apply a system in effect, it is necessary to begin with a clarification of the ends which the product of cataloging - that is, the catalog - is to serve in the library. To contribute to an understanding of these ends, the present study considers the role of the catalog in relation to the library's operations and services, the function of the catalog as it has evolved over the past century, and the specific objectives which the catalog has come to serve in view of its role and function in the library.
