1Gorman, M.: RDA: the emperor's new code.
In: Jlis.it. 7(2016) no.2, S.99-107.
Abstract: Argues that the RDA was an unnecessary waste of time and money. The few improvements it makes in catalogue records could have been accomplished far more cheaply, promptly, and easily by modifying AACR2. Argues that RDA's abandonment of the ISBD is a retrograde and damaging step.

2Gorman, M.: Revisiting enduring values.
In: Jlis.it. 6(2015) no.2, S.13-33.
Abstract: The paper discusses the nature of values in general and the nature and utility of the values of librarianship. Delineates the changes that have occurred and are occurring in the wider world and the nature of change; also the importance of values in providing a framework for dealing with present and future change. Stresses the centrality of the human record to societal progress, the place of the human record in cultural heritage, and the central purpose of libraries in facilitating interaction with the human record and furthering the transmission of cultural heritage. Urges a turning away from the alien value systems of information technology, consumerism, materialism, and corporate management, and a consequent set of alliances between libraries and a wide range of cultural institutions and associations.

3Gorman, M.: ¬The origins and making of the ISBD : a personal history, 1966-1978.
In: Cataloging and classification quarterly. 52(2014) no.8, S.821-834.
Abstract: What follows are my memories of the events, starting almost five decades ago, that led to the International Standard for Bibliographic Description (ISBD)-still the most successful and widely used international cataloging standard in history. Many of the documents of the time were little more than ephemera (working papers and the like) and some are not now available to me. I have checked my recollections in all the documents to which I have access and apologize in advance for any errors of time or place. I also apologize for the, alas, unavoidable, given the nature of the essay, many repetitions of the words "I" and "me."

5Gorman, M.: Authority control in the context of bibliographic control in the electronic environment.
In: Cataloging and classification quarterly. 38(2004) nos.3/4, S.xx-xx.
Abstract: Defines authority control and vocabulary control and their place and utility in modern cataloguing. Discusses authority records and authority files and the use and purposes of each. Describes the creation of authority records and the sources from which authority data is collected. Discusses "metadata" schemes and their manifold and manifest inadequacies; points out the relationship of the Dublin Core to the MARC family of standards and the fact that both are framework standards-the first simplistic and naïve, the second complex and nuanced. Defines precision and recall as desiderata in indexing and retrieval schemes and relates them to authority control in catalogues. Discusses the problems involved in cataloguing electronic documents and resources and proposes an international program under the Universal Bibliographic Control (UBC) umbrella, using an international code of descriptive cataloguing, and based on an international name authority file. Calls for urgent action on these proposals.

6Gorman, M.: Cataloging in an electronic age.
In: Cataloging and classification quarterly. 36(2003) nos.3/4, S.5-17.
Abstract: Examines the achievements in bibliographic control of the last thirty years and the strides made toward Universal Bibliographic Control. Discusses the intended and unintended effects of three standards-the MARC format, ISBD, and AACR. Analyzes the types of resources in cyberspace to be organized and their similarities to and differences from documents librarians already know. Suggests strategies for solving the seemingly insoluble problems of cataloging the Internet and predicts how metadata will evolve.

7Gorman, M.: Why teach cataloguing and classification?.
In: Cataloging and classification quarterly. 34(2002) nos.1/2, S.1-14.
Abstract: Enemies of cataloging today include ill-informed administrators, information scientists in library schools, and those who think that alternatives to vocabulary control and bibliographic architecture-such as Google-are better and cheaper than cataloging. Bibliographic control and cataloging should be at the heart of library education. An ideal library school is described.

10Gorman, M.: Metadata or cataloguing? : a false choice.
In: Journal of Internet cataloging. 2(1999) no.1, S.5-22.
Abstract: Libraries, their collections, and bibliographic control are essential components of the provision of access to recorded knowledge. Cataloging is a primary method of bibliographic control. Full or traditional cataloging is very expensive, but relying on keyword searching is inadequate. Alternatives for a solution to cataloging needs for electronic resources including the use of metadata and the Dublin Core are examined. Many questions exist regarding the long-term future of today's electronic documents. Recommendations are made for preserving recorded knowledge and information in the electronic resources for future generations

11Gorman, M.: ¬The Five Laws of Library Science : then and now.
In: School library journal. 44(1998) no.7, S.20-23.
Abstract: Explains Ranganathan's 5 Laws of Library Science which are: books are for use; every book its reader; every reader his book; save the time of the reader; and the library is a growing organism: offers 5 new laws of library science in the belief that they are more appropriate in the current context; libraries serve humanity; respect all forms by which knowledge is communicated; use technology intelligently to enhance service; protect free access to knowledge; and honour the past and create the future
12Gorman, M.: ¬The future of cataloguing and cataloguers.
In: International cataloguing and bibliographic control. 27(1998) no.4, S.68-71.
Abstract: Reviews the current economic and social situation, the negative effects on civilization of commercialized entertainment and computers, and concepts of society and discusses how regaining control in the areas of libraries and cataloguing can counter these negative influences. Focuses on the ability of cataloguers to continue to offer access to knowledge through integrated records of pan media collections and examines the questions of what should be recorded, standards and descriptive cataloguing. To maximize the abilities of computerized systems proposes an approach to subject indexing, classification, shelf arrangement and an overhaul of MARC

13Crawford, W. ; Gorman, M.: Future libraries : dreams, madness & reality.
Chicago, IL : ALA, 1995.
Abstract: Reach for 'Future libraries' when they say you don't need staff, space, or collections; when they tell you to get with the all-electronic future and when they tell you that the virtual library will do it all for less. Crawford and Gorman find much of this future vision to be virtual nonsense and, in fact, devastating to the cultural mission of libraries. Thsi volume is a valuable antidote to the flood of hyperbole about libraries without walls, electronic texts and virtual collections which we have seen in the past 2 years

14Gorman, M.: ¬An adminstrator's view : factors influencing organized subject access.
In: Technicalities. 15(1995) no.10, S.1.
Abstract: Supports the continuing value of subject access in libraries. Isolates factors that should be taken into account when evaluating the cost effectiveness and cost benefit of subject access systems: type of subject need, recall and relevance, specifity, expressed relationship, usability, time, authority control, and cost
15Gorman, M.: ¬The corruption of cataloging.
In: Library journal. 120(1995) no.15, S.32-33.
Abstract: Argues against the downgrading of cataloguing within libraries. Hightlights 2 ways in which this is occuring: the reduction or elimination of professional cataloguers and the reliance of clerical staff in their place; and outsourcing, or privatization of the library's current cataloguing. Stresses that cataloguing is at the heart of the library and that the interrelationship between reference service and catalguing needs to be recognized and strenghtened. Also addresses the issues of universal bibliographic control (based on a bedrock of good local cataloguing) and of the bibliographic control of electronic resources, which, it is argued, given the evidence of the chaos on the Internet, is in dire need of the skills of professional cataloguers

17Gorman, M. ; Oddy, P.: Bibliographic standards and the library of the future.
In: Catalogue and index. 1993, no.110, S.1,4-5.
Abstract: Rejects ideas that print will be replaced by electronic access to information. Librarianship should incorporate the useful aspects of electronic technology while maintaining what is useful and good about past and present services. Considers how to best adapt and enhance current structures to accomodate electronic documents and to use automation to improve access and delivery. Cataloguing and classification will remain central to information access. Examines the future of bibliographic standards in the future
