Title
Nineteen Thirty-Eight to today : problems in cataloging then and now
Source
Cataloging and classification quarterly. 8(1987) no.1, S.25-48
Year

Abstract
In 1938 the Catalog Section of the American Library Association (ALA) mailed a questionnaire to approximately 1600 librarians, asking their opinions concerning various problems in cataloging and classification. Many changes have occurred since then, but there are problems cited in 1938 that are still with us in one form or another. The items listed in the questionnaire are discussed, and conclusions drawn as to their pertinence for today.
