Cataloguing theory is vital to an effective library. Introduction to Cataloguing Theory describes the qualities of an ideal catalogue, and examines how effective a library catalogue can be as a tool for search. This title covers the evolution of catalogue codes and the structure of library catalogues, also exploring the characteristics and search behaviour of users. This is an important resource for professional librarians interested in building co-operative networks. The book consists of four sections, which cover the history, purpose, and types of library catalogues; the format of catalogue entries; the choice and rendering of headings and cataloguing of non-print media; and subject indexing.
