Descriptive Cataloging for the AACR2R and the Integrated MARC Format: A How-To-Do-It Workbook. Revised Edition. How-To-Do-It Manuals for Librarians, Number 77.
Millsap, Larry; Ferl, Terry Ellen
In a highly automated technical services environment, catalogers must know how to create original descriptive cataloging records which can be shared with other libraries. This second edition on descriptive cataloging for the AACR2R (Anglo-American Cataloging Rules, 2nd edition, 1988 revision with 1993 amendments) contains 50 new exercise examples to help cataloging students and librarians learn to create MARC records in many different formats. Each consists of a title page or other given information which can be used to create a cataloging record on a workform. Following each workform is a sample of the completed catalog record and explanations citing the rules that apply. The book is divided into three parts. Part 1 describes the structure of descriptive cataloging's two essential tools--the rules themselves and the integrated MARC format--for which the exercises provide structured practice. Part 2 consists of seven chapters of the exercises and their solutions, covering books, collections, computer files, maps, music and sound recordings, visual materials, and serials. Part 3 includes review questions and their answers. Appendices include an annotated bibliography and a complete set of additional workforms. (AEF)
