Title
Descriptive cataloging education in library schools, using the University of Washington as a specific example
Source

Abstract
An important part of cataloging education in library schools is descriptive cataloging, which is concerned with preparing the descriptions, entries and name headings for library materials. Although debate occurs over the primacy of theory and principles, or practices, and whether descriptive cataloging or subject analysis should receive the most emphasis, there is general agreement that all students need instruction in the processes of cataloging. The descriptive cataloging segment of the curriculum of the Graduate School of Library and Information Science, University of Washington, is described to illustrate one approach to cataloging education.
