School librarians and media specialists need to have an understanding of cataloguing practices and standards. As cataloguing rules undergo changes, such as the transition to RDA, school librarians and students will need a tool to guide them through the basics of cataloguing and its new rules. Newberg's Cataloging for School Librarians recognizes and fulfils the need for such a tool, and for a cataloguing book that will cover the ground most relevant to and useful for the school librarian. "Cataloging for School Librarians" will provide an important introduction to cataloguing as well as an in-dept discussion of its essential components, description and access. With this book, readers will be able to understand the concept of cataloguing and will learn how to create bibliographic records and do full-level cataloguing. Cataloguing practicalities that are encountered in the field, such as working with vendors, are covered as well. Helpful cheatsA" are included as an appendix, making the task of cataloguing easier for the busy librarian. Special attention will be paid to the progress and future of cataloguing, as RDA and FRBR are addressed in their own section, as well as throughout the book. The school library context will also feature heavily throughout, with sections on how children search, Sears Headings and DDC numbers. Whether they need a primer or a refresher, school librarians at any stage in their careers will find what they are looking for in this thorough and friendly book.
