Title
What is the future for cataloging?
Source
Nebraska Library Association quarterly. 25(1994) no.2, S.40-46
Year

Abstract
Notes that the trends in US cataloguing all involve change. They include providing library users with better and deeper access to the materials owned by the library and to resources available through online gateways. Outsourcing is a viable cataloguing alternative for the future, but must be compared to doing the work in house. Greater cooperation with the Library of Congress and other libraries will occur. Cataloguing units and cataloguing time will be downsized and will require 'doing more with less'. Eventually, users may be able to obtain their information anywhere. However, there will still be a need for a cataloguer's organizational and analytical skills in order to make information accessible
