Description

Cataloguing and cataloguers are living in an era of changes. During the last decade, library literature started to refer to cataloguing as a "falling kingdom". Some library managers are beginning to question the usefulness of traditional standards and cataloguing principles. Developing Internet-based technologies put in question the need for the library catalogue and the Integrated Library System. Conventional wisdom sees the traditional library user flocking to the ""web"" in pursuit of the instantly accessible digital content. This book is written for library professionals and managers. It will examine and discuss fundamental issues affecting the library catalogue and cataloguing in the 21st century. Special emphasis will be placed on the changing nature of cataloguing and the cataloguing profession, the cataloguing standards, the Integrated Library System, and the options that information and library leaders and managers can consider in making their decisions.
