Title
¬The academic paraprofessional cataloger underappreciated?
Source
Cataloging and classification quarterly. 15(1992) no.3, S.81-92
Year

Abstract
The changing role of paraprofessional catalogers in academic libraries is described vis-á-vis their counterparts, he professional catalogers. Today paraprofessional catalogers are getting involved in what used to be considered "professional work." The issues of educational requirements, cataloging duties, training, and lack of acknowledgement are brought forward. The barriers encountered by paraprofessionals are presented and the changing dynamics within cataloging departments are explored.
