Abstract
As an exercise in pondering cataloging in the networked environment ("networked environment" meaning electronic information sources interconnected through the Internet), this article compares traditional cataloging and Web-based description of two topics-the concept of "green cards" and a recent nonfiction work. This involves, first, outlining intellectual access issues as they apply to reference services today ("intellectual access" meaning the formal or informal description of a work for purposes of its discovery by others). Following this is an outline of key cataloging issues, per Sanford Berman, and corresponding issues in Web-based intellectual access. Ways that catalogers and public service librarians can address these issues conclude the article.
