MEDIA REVIEWS
This book should be in every school library, read by every person who manages the local catalog, and kept nearby as a handy reference. * School Library Connection *
Cataloging for School Librarians is a great example of a school library cataloging textbook. The references Kelsey makes to historical figures who have contributed to the development of bibliographic documentation and classification (including Melville Dewey and Minnie Sears) are nice additions that help provide context to the reasons why we use the Dewey Decimal Classification and Sears List of Subject Headings today. * Technicalities *
This highly comprehensive volume covers the subject in great depth, illustrating the encyclopedic knowledge of the author. Marie Kelsey is a well-recognized authority in this field and has placed much of her knowledge within the covers of this book. . . .This volume surely deserves a place in library training departments and possibly some larger Schools Library Services with a training and advisory role. * The School Librarian *
Cataloging for School Librarians is a very practical guide, written in a straight-forward, conversational tone, for real-world application. The comparisons of AACR2 with RDA are invaluable. This book provides the necessary practical learning, but also challenges readers to think about the reasons behind the decisions with the `Test your critical thinking' questions. Reminding me of the tag line, `Thinking like a historian,' which is common in school social studies instruction, here, the challenge is `Thinking like a cataloger!' The variety of practice questions at the ends of different chapters keeps the learning from becoming `same-old, same-old' as the reader works through the text. -- JoAnne Tiedemann, District Cataloging Librarian/Media Specialist, Madison Metropolitan School District, Wisconsin
