Cataloguing of Non-Print Resources: A Practical Manual (Hardcover)
In libraries and information centers, an increasing use of non-print resources requires standardized cataloguing of these materials. This practical manual is developed with the objective to teach LIS students cataloguing practices for both manual and automated library systems. It is a complete guide to help in preparing cataloguing records for various non-print resources, such as audio-visual materials, microforms, and electronic resources, according to the Anglo American Cataloguing Rules-II. The book critically examines the bibliographic elements, access points, and subject headings required to prepare a cataloguing record as per AACR II. With the help of various illustrative examples the book tries to simplify the implementation of AACR II rules in preparing entries. An understanding of MARC21 record, tags, indicators, field and sub-field codes is also provided.
