Title
Cataloguing, lies, and videotape : comparing the IMDb and the library catalogue

Abstract
Many librarians have written about the Internet Movie Database (IMDb; http://www.imdb.com), praising it as a popular and effective reference tool. However, the cataloguing principles that drive the database's user-friendly structure have been largely overlooked. In this paper, we examine the organizational principles behind the IMDb and compare them to standard cataloguing practice according to AACR 2 and the MARC format. This approach provides illustrations of how different cataloguing principles support information access, while offering a new perspective on the library online catalogue.
