Catalogers hungry for hard-to-find answers regarding the best way to insure access to diverse new content will find expert solutions in this vital new resource.ISBN: 9781555706685
Authors Mary Beth Weber and Fay Austin address RDA, the latest hot new trend in cataloging, along with traditional examples of cataloging like MARC, MODS, and Dublin Core. Streaming video, Internet sites, dual-disc DVDs, blogs and listservs are just some of the rapidly emerging, and often complicated, new resources covered in this current, easy-to-follow manual. Weber and Austin dedicate separate chapters to each non-print and e-resource format, and include corresponding examples to help demonstrate practical implementation of these critical new skills.
"This is an up-to-date and handy desk reference for catalogers of electronic, digital cartographic, sound, video, Internet, database, and other mixed media. It's also suitable for non-tech services librarians…With a useful CD-ROM for step-by-step help and a companion website that will be updated as necessary. Recommended."
