Description

This book provides a comprehensive overview of the landmark developments in serials cataloging over the past few years. Serials Cataloging: Modern Perspectives and International Developments updates and complements the earlier volume Serials Cataloging: A State of the Art. This thorough volume focuses on the areas of education and training, cataloging practice, theory, and current developments, international aspects, and options for change.

Thisbook is packed with information for serials catalogers, students, and even other librarians who need insight into the rapidly changing world of serials cataloging. Chapters provide information on international aspects such as ISBD(S) and ISDS outside of North America, and serials cataloging in the United Kingdom, Australia, and Italy. Other subjects covered include the work of the CONSER Subject and Classification Task Force, the need for uniform titles in AACR2, serials records in online public access catalogs like NOTIS, changes in U.S. policy related to the multiple versions question, the relationship of the Linked Systems Project to serials cataloging, and the role of name main-entry headings in online public access catalogs.
