The first edition of the Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules (AACR) was published in 1967. Unlike previous codes, the AACR was primarily based on a set of principles set out at the International Conference on Cataloguing Principles held in Paris in 1961, known as the “Paris Principles”. In his remark on the newly published AACR rules, editor-in-chief Sumner Spaulding noted that “the new rules are primarily focused on the essential characteristics of the problems to be solved; the old rules are mainly aimed at individual cases that are problematic” (FN 3). One of the main objectives of the new code was to simplify the entry and title rules, and in this area the new code took a completely different approach. The topic rules were now so general that they could be applied to everyone through a logical step-by-step approach. AACR2 guides you through the cataloguing process with clearly defined rules and practical examples that represent standards that apply to every type of resource and all metadata formats. The Joint Steering Committee has developed a new update reflecting the changes and improvements for 2005. No file. 0838935575 text + 0838935567 folder.
Updates. The two product subscriptions consist of four cumulative editions that appear quarterly. Classification Plus contains all of the recently revised library of Congress classification plans as well as the five-volume Big Red Book, Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH). Researchers and reference librarians rely on LCSH to shorten search time by finding the standard topic title used to search for specific documents. “Some avid netizens are starting to check out the thematic sections of the Library of Congress to quickly access critical information that might otherwise be contained in a maze of irrelevant citations,” he said. With 8.5″ x 11″ loose-leaf pages that fit into a standard 3-ring folder, separately numbered chapters for easy integration of updates, and a design that clearly distinguishes rules from examples, AACR2 is the essential resource for cataloguing descriptions and access. Libraries can rely on this international standard for flexible, out-of-the-box rules for the basic work of developing resource catalogs and bibliographic entries. AACR2 remains the authoritative choice for achieving consistency, clarity and accessibility when cataloguing resources across all media.
A third question relating to authorship concerns the concept of bibliographic identity. Does this concept really change the concept of authorship in the sense that the author may not be a person as such, but a character treated as a person for bibliographic purposes? If the author is indeed an abstract entity, can it be argued that he extends the application of the notion of bibliographic identity beyond the cases dealt with in Rules 22.2B (pseudonyms) and 21.6D (common pseudonyms)? Why are other cases where people use more than one name not treated this way? Is it possible to articulate a principle that reflects this inconsistent treatment? The model explains in more detail how these factors structure the rules for selecting master and additional entries. There are a number of diagrams that illustrate the entry under the personal name headings for: REFERENCE is a direction from one title or entry to another. The rules in Part II specify when references are to be made and what form of references are to be found, see also references and explanatory references. The rules, published jointly by the American Library Association, the Canadian Library Association and the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals in the United Kingdom, were developed for the creation of library catalogues and similar bibliographic tools. The rules concern the physical description of library resources and the provision of name and title access points. Part I, Description based on the ISBD(G) framework. Included a general chapter (Chapter 1) and chapters for individual formats, including new chapters for machine-readable data files (Chapter 9) and three-dimensional artifacts and Realia (Chapter 10). The rules for non-book documents were based on alternative codes published in the 1970s. Although it claims to be “Anglo-American”, the first edition of the AACR was published in 1967 in slightly different North American and British texts. The second edition of 1978 unified the two sets of rules (using the British spelling “cataloguing”) and brought them into line with the International Standard Bibliographic Description (ISBD).
