Subject Access Points in the MARC Record and Archival Finding Aid: Enough or Too Many?
Cox, Elizabeth; Czechowski, Leslie
Journal of Archival Organization, v5 n4 p51-59 2007
In this research project, the authors set out to discover the current practice in both the archival and cataloging worlds for usage of access points in descriptive records and to learn how archival descriptive practices fit into long-established library cataloging procedures and practices. A sample of archival finding aids and MARC records at 123 Association of Research Libraries (ARL) institutions were examined to determine if finding aids and catalog records had the same or similar number of access points. The research also provided additional data regarding description of archival materials in these libraries. (Contains 2 figures and 25 notes.)
