Graduate Assistant Informational & Procedures Manual.
Smith, Stephen J.
This manual was compiled for use by staff and graduate assistants working in the OCLC Cataloging Section of the Automated Services Unit, Technical Services Division, University of Illinois Library at Urbana-Champaign. Although the procedures described are institution-specific, their applications could be adapted to accommodate copy cataloging operations within research libraries of similar or smaller scope. The overall structure of the manual is from the general to the particular, separated into three volumes. The first volume identifies basic principles and concepts of cataloging and discusses catalog management. The remaining volumes, volume two: cataloging procedures and volume three: basic guidelines concern the implementation of these principles into a working catalog, involving both typical and specialized procedures used for the different types of materials at the Library. The Glossary primarily contains definitions of cataloging concepts, tools, and terminology relevant within the shared cataloging environment. The Index identifies pertinent memoranda on cataloging policy and procedure, and relates topics of procedural importance within the manual. (AEF)
