Title
¬The bibliographic control of rare books : phased cataloging, descriptive standards, and costs
Source

Abstract
Because rare book cataloging stresses the unique and characteristics of the species in special collections, it tends to be eclectic, chaotic even, in resisting standards and uniform description. Rare book librarians have therefore sought alternatives to AACR2 for bibliographic description at more detailed levels of control than this standard. Slowly a hierarchy of levels for the bibliographic control of books, manuscript and printed, is evolving which has a counterpart in archival control. As librarians choose appropriate levels of description for rare books and manuscripts, cost considerations must play their proper role. A survey of the major rare book and manuscript repositories in the U.S. and Canada provides comparative data for the cost of cataloging at levels higher than AACR2 and delineates other characteristics of RBSC operations for personnel, compensation, unit costs, backlogs, regional variance, standards in practice, accommodation of automation and networking, methods of providing intellectual access, and acquisition activities. This study discusses the concept of phased cataloging and collection management but suggests that current practices are not yet rationalized into an integrated system for the bibliographic control of rare books and archival control of manuscripts and records.
