FLC/FEDLINK AACR 2 Cataloging Manual for Federal Libraries.
Wajenberg, Arnold S.
Intended as a guide for federal agency libraries in the application of the second edition of the Anglo-American Cataloging Rules and not to supersede them, the emphasis in this manual is on material and problems likely to be encountered by catalogers in the area of descriptive cataloging, and it includes the most recent Library of Congress rule interpretations at the time of publication. Following an introductory section, the main body of the manual is arranged according to AACR2 rule number with discussions and example applications to specific cases. Each example refers to the appendix, which contains photocopies of title pages and other sections of books, serials, etc. Complete cataloging, with and without MARC coding, is given for each title and is cited whenever that title is used to illustrate a rule. A number of typographic conventions are included to assist the user. (RAA)
