Description


Library catalogs are doorways to accessing the information treasures available within. To provide excellent service for all who wish to enter, especially children, this classic cataloging reference has provided the key for almost two decades. Since 1998, when the third edition of Cataloging Correctly for Kids was published, library cataloging has experienced explosive changes in practices, technological tools, scope of services, and available materials. The new fourth edition, again published in conjunction with the Association for Library Collections and Technical Services (ALCTS), addresses those changes and continues to make catalog data accessible to children while following consistent and universal standards. Starting with updated Guidelines for Standardized Cataloging of Children's Materials, this definitive edition calls on the foremost experts in cataloging to: explain the unique ways children search so catalog information is accessible to them; identify ways to incorporate AACR-2 and MARC standards; show how to use standard heading forms including LC's children's headings; and illuminate the challenges of cataloging nonprint materials and automating the process. school, and academic librarians responsible for children's cataloging will find a comprehensive, authoritative one-stop guide to better serving the youngest library users at the catalog.
