I had to use this book for a graduate LIS degree and it was okay. There are lots of examples but few explanations so you have to discern for yourself what the author is trying to convey. If you are not familar with cataloging this is not helpful since it does not explain very well. I am looking for a book that shows examples and explains the AACR2 rules in English for people who are not familar with the library terms. This book would have been excellent if there was more detailed explanations.

This was a required book for a graduate cataloging course. At first I was very overwhelmed by the book but as time went on, I appreciated having it as a resource.

The book is heavy on examples but there is not a lot of text that tells you HOW to catalog. However, the AACR2 book, the information from the professor and various online resources like MARC21 and OCLC web sites filled that gap.

The various types of examples illustrated are what makes this book a winner.

This book is informative. It gives many examples on how to catalog records with details. It comes with a Power Point disc that goes along with book and that is very helpful. It also has the Cutter Table and explains it. The books gives details about Library of Congress and Dewey cataloging.

Very useful. This is one of the books I've held onto after graduation, because who knows if I might need a refresher.
