New in paperback! In this fundamental revision of Susan Akers' classic, the authors give the rules for using Dewey Decimal Classification tables clearly and briefly. They do not suggest all the ways of cataloging a small library, treat LC classification or subject headings (or other systems), or explain the use of computers in cataloging, but they do discuss the continuing impact of automation on even the smallest library's catalogs. The discussion and examples- almost all new-reflect AACR2, Sears (11th ed.), and Abridged Dewey. Cloth edition published in 1984.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Continues a noble tradition of combining practical savvy and useful theory, displaying much more vision than that over-modest 'simple' promises....Theory and language remain clearly rooted in real-world needs....Much is new about Akers', but the virtues remain, enhanced by the authors' vivid awareness that small libraries, too, are part of the modern age. * Library Journal *
The seventh edition of this standard handbook continues to provide valuable guidance for librarians who work in small public, college, school, or special libraries and who have little formal training in the rudiments of cataloging. * Booklist *
