Summary

Discover how librarians around the world are responding to the new demands of a fast-changing profession!

More computers and fewer staff, more types of resources to catalog and less time in which to study them--these are the problems librarians are facing at the dawn of a new millennium. Managing Cataloging and the Organization of Information offers solutions from cataloging and technical services managers around the world. Contributions from Australia, Botswana, Latin America, Canada, and the United States guarantee a truly international perspective.

Managing Cataloging and the Organization of Information describes new and effective ways to coordinate all aspects of automation, staffing, organization, teamwork, and work flow. These techniques have been tested in libraries ranging from small college libraries to the ancient and revered Bodleian Library and the vast Library of Congress. National libraries, academic libraries, and specialized medical and law libraries are also represented.

In Managing Cataloging and the Organization of Information, catalogers and technical services managers will find useful suggestions in a number of areas, including:
  • total quality management
  • flexible strategies for cataloging local and remote resources
  • cataloging operations, trends, and perspectives
  • putting cataloging philosophy into practice
  • staff assignments and workflow distribution
  • building team spirit

    Managing Cataloging and the Organization of Information is an invaluable resource for library administrators, catalogers, library educators, technical services managers, and information scientists.
