Solutions devised for the catalog will need to be modified for use in the chaotic environment of the World Wide Web and its successors. ABSTRACT: Typographical errors can block access to records in online catalogs; but, when a word contains a typo and is also spelled correctly elsewhere in the same record, access may not be blocked. To quantify the effect of typographical errors in records on information retrieval, we conducted a study to measure the proportion of records that contain a typographical error but that do not also contain a correct spelling of the same word.
This article presents the experimental design, results of the study, and a statistical analysis of the results.
ABSTRACT: This comparative study was conducted to compare error rates encountered in monograph copy cataloging bibliographic records before and after a cataloging outsourcing program was implemented at the University of Saskatchewan Library. The findings of the study were twofold: 1 The error rates were low and acceptable; 2 There was no significant difference between error rates before and after outsourcing.
ABSTRACT: Catalogers are essential for cataloging and classification of resources in library catalogs to create a resource discovery tool to aid users in their research and public service librarians to assist users. The number of catalogers in libraries has declined in past decades; and many more are on the cusp of retirement, resulting in an impending loss of collective history.
Previous literature addressed catalogers in general, the training and recruitment of catalogers, and the expected retirements of librarians in general.

The purpose of this study is to assess the specific needs of nonprint or special format catalogers in relation to education, training, and mentorship. The survey results indicate nearly half of all special format catalogers will retire within fifteen years, and the majority have had special format cataloging added to their workflow over time.
Memberships in professional organizations are low, but one third hold some sort of office in an organization. Special format catalogers are interested in more training and felt that library schools do not offer enough training.
Ideas dealing with cooperative professional development among special format catalogers, professional organizations, and library schools are proposed based on the survey results. KEYWORDS: special format catalogers, professional development, cataloging training and education, mentorship, library education, professional organizations. They then present results indicating that records for print monographs acquired at the two institutions usually required little or no editing many of these records were U.

Current overlap statistics indicate that An unexpected discovery was that the contributed papers became much more holistic with the arrival of the Internet and electronic resources in academic libraries and, starting with the Detroit national conference, were much more difficult to categorize into specialized niches.
The author speculates that the attendance at the national conferences by a high proportion of librarians from small to mid-size academic libraries discourages papers on technical services topics since technical services librarians are more likely to work in large ARL libraries. Quo Vadis Cataloging? Elizabeth N. Responses to current challenges, including the impact of outsourced cataloging, increasing complexity of cataloging rules, and emerging technological options, are discussed. Principia Bibliographica? It delves into adversarial relationships between catalogers and technologists.
It seeks commonalities and suggests that new alternatives addressing both perspectives might offer superior and more satisfying results. A series of examples juxtapose current practices, enrichment possibilities, and flaws in current digital solutions to suggest potential opportunities where catalogers might excel. Speculation on ways to promote cataloging principles and values via more direct participation in the unruly digital environment hints at a more promising future for our profession.
ABSTRACT: Cataloging is compared to descriptive bibliography, to enumerative bibliography and abstracting and indexing services, as well as to metadata created by Web search engines or nonprofessionals at sites such as Amazon. These four types of metadata are compared with regard to object of the description, functions, scope, number of copies examined, collective vs. It identifies problems and suggests improvements.
ABSTRACT: The advantages of unique identifiers for the entities described in authority records are outweighed by the costs to manage an international system for assigning and maintaining such unique identifiers. This paper provides a personal recommendation to use the existing machine-generated record control numbers from our authority records as an interim measure until we see what future systems need.
