Title
¬The future of cataloguing and cataloguers

International cataloguing and bibliographic control. 27(1998) no.4, S.68-71
Year

Abstract
Reviews the current economic and social situation, the negative effects on civilization of commercialized entertainment and computers, and concepts of society and discusses how regaining control in the areas of libraries and cataloguing can counter these negative influences. Focuses on the ability of cataloguers to continue to offer access to knowledge through integrated records of pan media collections and examines the questions of what should be recorded, standards and descriptive cataloguing. To maximize the abilities of computerized systems proposes an approach to subject indexing, classification, shelf arrangement and an overhaul of MARC
