Cataloging and Classification for the Small Library. Second Edition. Revised and Enlarged.
Haynes, Kathleen J. M.
The purpose of this manual is to explain some of the basics of cataloging and classification for many types of library materials in small libraries. The ideas presented were gathered from practical applications in small libraries and from examples in standard cataloging and classification tools. The manual is designed for self instruction. There are five parts sequenced to guide the user through the cataloging process: (1) "The Cataloging Process" covers bibliographic control and the bibliographic record; (2) "Technical Services Procedures" examines automation and cataloging, filing, children's materials, and technical procedures; (3) "Descriptions" examines areas, levels, and rules of description; (4) "Access Points" covers main and added entries, headings, uniform titles, and authority control; and (5) "Subject Analysis" addresses the use of existing catalog copy, verifying headings, assigning subject headings, the structure of "Sears List of Subject Headings," materials needing special treatment, and classification. Each chapter contains exercises to complete and examples to help illustrate points. The answers are found in the appendices along with a glossary of terms, a list of vendors, and a bibliography. (Contains 25 references.) (JLB)
