Book Description

This book, first published in 1948, lays out the basic precepts for the useful cataloguing of a library’s collection. With catalogues being first compiled to serve as records of stock – a practice dating back to ancient Egypt – modern developments have updated the methods for doing so, for instance adding a bibliographic description to the record.
