Describing Music Materials, 4th edition, is the long-awaited update of the authoritative guide to music cataloging written by internationally known knowledge organization expert Richard P. Smiraglia, currently a professor at the School of Information Studies, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Although this edition was prepared as a supplementary textbook for a music cataloging course, it will be useful beyond that audience-to anyone seeking to broaden their knowledge of the application of instructions from RDA: Resource Description and Access to music materials.... Smiraglia does a great job of clearly explaining various RDA and musical concepts, which is expected given the history and intended audience for the book. The use of `real-world' examples (with facsimile illustrations) is extremely helpful for catalogers learning to connect the information found in a resource to the instructions given in RDA. Each of the full-level examples is annotated as to the decisions made, giving references to the appropriate RDA instruction.... Describing Music Materials is recommended for students and catalogers seeking guidance in the application of RDA to music materials in all formats. * Technicalities *
