Examine cataloging and classification training programs around the world

Education for Library Cataloging: International Perspectives examines the global development of educational programs for cataloging and classification in the library and information field. Library school faculty and professional librarians from more than 20 countries discuss a wide range of topics, including formal school and continuing education of catalog librarians, education and training for paraprofessional staff in cataloging and technical services, changes in library school programs, and metadata and information organization instruction.

Faculty members and seasoned librarians from Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, Latin America, and the Middle East present case studies and overviews of library and information school programs, bibliographies of cited works in both Western and non-Western language literature, and plenty of helpful tables and charts. Articles presented in Education for Library Cataloging: International Perspectives are organized geographically to make it easier to check which countries are covered in each region, and to determine regional similarities and differences. Political, historical, cultural, religious, and linguistic factors were also considered to demonstrate the wide range of educational efforts and programs to cultivate cataloging professionals all over the world.

Topics examined in Education for Library Cataloging: International Perspectives include:
* education and training development for librarians in the University of Botswana Library
* the library science school curricula in the Cross River State of Nigeria
* the training of students in cataloging via distant education in South Africa
* education programs in China

* an overview of the education for cataloging and classification in Mexico
* the current status of cataloging and classification education in Egypt
* recent changes to cataloging teaching in Israel
* the continuing education for catalogers in Saudi Arabia
