Summary

Make maps and other cartographic materials more easily accessible and usable!

Maps and Related Cartographic Materials: Cataloging, Classification, and Bibliographic Control is a format-focused reference manual for catalogers that should occupy a prominent place on your reference shelf.

Outside of standard cartographic cataloging tools, the bibliographic treatment of all forms of cartographic materials has never been compiled into one useful source. This book separately examines the treatment of all major cartographic format types and outlines the way each should be cataloged.

With Maps and Related Cartographic Materials: Cataloging, Classification, and Bibliographic Control, you will learn to catalog the major formats of cartographic materials, including:
  • sheet maps
  • early and contemporary atlases
  • remote-sensed images such as aerial photographs and satellite images
  • globes
  • geologic sections
  • digital material
  • items on CD-ROM
Although it is primarily aimed at the beginning “maps cataloger,” Maps and Related Cartographic Materials: Cataloging, Classification, and Bibliographic Control will also be very helpful to the experienced cataloger who has not yet attempted to catalog, say, maps on CD-ROM. In each chapter, the experience and expertise of an established map cataloger or map librarian is the main source of information, giving you practical and up-to-date advice.
