Cataloging and classification : an introduction (4th ed.)
Lois Mai Chan and Athena Salaba
Lanham, Maryland : Rowman & Littlefield, [2016]
The fourth edition of the late Lois Mai Chan’s classic Cataloging and Classification covers the analysis and representation of methods used in describing, organizing, and providing access to resources made available in or through libraries. Since the last edition published in 2007, there have been dramatic changes in cataloging systems from the Library of Congress. The most notable being the shift from AACR2 to Resource Description and Access (RDA) as the new standard developed by the Library of Congress. With the help of the coauthor, Athena Salaba, this text is modified throughout to conform to the new standard.
