Cataloging Is a Prime Number.
Zyroff, Ellen
American Libraries, v27 n5 p47-48,50 May 1996
Examines the problems of viewing cataloging as an optional skill for librarians. Discusses factors that are eroding cataloging as a core competency, the elimination of cataloging positions amid shrinking budgets, the effect of this trend on library education and librarian role, mediocre service as an inevitable result, and the need to reestablish basic competencies of library science.
